Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent G Reggie Jackson plans to sign a two-year, $22M deal to return to the Los Angeles Clippers as soon as allowable at 6 PM ET, agents Aaron Mintz and Erika Ruiz of @CAA_Basketball tell ESPN. The deal is the maximum LA can pay Jackson under CBA rules.
Jordan Schultz: UFA Reggie Jackson has drawn plenty of interest after his strong postseason. However, don’t rule out the #Clippers. League sources say the Clips are hopeful about resigning Jackson, who shot a career-best 43.3 percent from 3 this year and tallied nine 20-pt playoff games.
Jordan Schultz: Money will be a key factor for Jackson, especially given the #Clippers don’t have much left. But, it’s no secret he likes the organization and enjoyed his role. One sleeper team to consider is New Orleans. Trajan Langdon likes Jackson.
Tomer Azarly: “We want them back as Clippers. We respect that they have a choice to make. With Kawhi, we hope to have a very long-term relationship with him… We’d like to bring Reggie, Nico back. We hope Serge opts in. We have other FA as well.” Lawrence Frank on free agency.
Ohm Youngmisuk: Paul George wants Reggie Jackson back but knows there could be suitors: “Obviously Reggie has played himself into options in free agency. Rightfully so. He played his ass off.”
Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent guard Reggie Jackson is returning to the Los Angeles Clippers on a one-year deal, sources tell ESPN. Jackson is expected to play a prominent role in the Clippers backcourt rotation.
So far with the Clippers, he has averaged 20 minutes per game, which is great if he keeps them but there is no guarantee he is in their rotation during the playoffs. If Jackson proves he can be a contributor for a contender, like he was in Oklahoma City, that would be more impressive to potential suitors than filling up the stat sheet on a lottery team. If his tenure with the Clippers is successful, they are limited in re-signing him to either a minimum contract or via what will likely be the taxpayer mid-level exception (T-MLE). The T-MLE is currently projected at $6 million, which could be on the lower end of offers he will receive this summer.

Bobby Marks: Cap hit on the Reggie Jackson buyout/waiver in Detroit is: 🏀2019/20: $17,286,956 Jackson gave back a flat $800K
Fresh off of securing a buyout with Detroit, veteran guard Reggie Jackson intends to sign with the Clippers once he clears waivers Thursday afternoon, a person with knowledge of Jackson’s plans confirmed Tuesday.
For the Clippers, Jackson’s expected signing would come with another benefit — keeping him away from the Lakers, who also hold interest in signing him to bolster their backcourt. The Clippers also acquired another Lakers target, New York forward Marcus Morris, ahead of the Feb. 6 trade deadline. Jackson, however, had eyes on the Clippers because of his close friendship with forward Paul George.
After agreeing to a contract buyout with the Detroit Pistons, guard Reggie Jackson plans to sign with the LA Clippers upon clearing waivers, league sources told ESPN. Jackson had become the highest-impact player available in the buyout marketplace and had been a target of the Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers.
Jackson, 29, will play a significant role on the Clippers’ second unit, where coach Doc Rivers is anxious to implement his playmaking and scoring abilities into a roster that could be the NBA’s deepest.
Jackson was completing the final season of a five-year, $80 million contract with the Pistons. The Pistons and Jackson’s agent, Aaron Mintz of CAA Sports, completed the buyout terms earlier Tuesday before reaching an agreement with the Clippers on Tuesday afternoon.

Marc Stein: Detroit’s Reggie Jackson is still assessing whether to pursue a buyout or complete his Pistons contract, league sources say, but the Clippers have emerged as a likely suitor if Jackson goes that route The Clips, of course, also have interest in prime Laker target Darren Collison
The re-signing of ex-Boston College standout Reggie Jackson by the Pistons for $16 million per season caused shock around the NBA because it appears Jackson, a restricted free agent, had no other serious suitor. Jackson, 25, who has been criticized for selfishness during his career, played well with the Pistons after being acquired from the Thunder at the trade deadline last season. Coach and team president Stan Van Gundy promised Jackson the Pistons would bring him back. Jackson’s patience paid off. He turned down a four-year, $48 million extension from the Thunder before being traded.
The Detroit Pistons have chosen their point guard of the future. Nearly five months after landing Reggie Jackson via trade from the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Pistons came to terms with their 25-year-old restricted free agent on a five-year, $80 million deal on Sunday. The deal was confirmed to USA TODAY Sports by a person with knowledge of the terms who spoke on the condition of anonymity because it can’t be finalized until the free agency moratorium lifts on July 9.

Chris Broussard: Sources: Reggie Jackson just agreed to contract terms with the Detroit Pistons 5 years, $80 million. No options
Van Gundy has made it clear he wants Jackson to return and Jackson has stated publicly he expects to be back so the first item on the Pistons agenda seem likely to get done. Van Gundy said Jackson will be the first person he calls when free agency starts. “He’s priority No. 1, even above small forward,” Van Gundy said. “Priority No. 1. Reggie is priority No. 1. There’s nothing more important to our summer than getting that situation resolved.”

NBA star Giannis Antetokounmpo was in Greece for a meeting with the country’s prime minister Thursday and a special ceremony to bestow Greek citizenship on his mother Veronica and younger brother Alex. Antetokounmpo, who led the Milwaukee Bucks to the NBA championship in July, attended the ceremony at the official residence of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis. The 26-year-old Antetokounmpo was born in Athens, the son of Nigerian immigrants. He was granted Greek citizenship in 2013, allowing him to travel to the United States and join the Bucks later that year.
“We always felt Greek, but now we have an official stamp and we are happy,” Antetokounmpo told reporters after the ceremony. “Alex and my mom are Greek citizens now.” Antetokounmpo also traveled to Greece in August with his brother Thanassis, carrying the Larry O’Brien NBA championship trophy. He took the trophy to the ancient Acropolis in Athens to celebrate with members of his family.
