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.
More Rumors in this Storyline
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.
The L.A. Clippers have signed free agent guard Reggie Jackson, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations, Lawrence Frank.
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.”

After a 125-113 loss to the Cavaliers on Friday night, the Brooklyn Nets leave their road trip to Cleveland 0-2 and have a slew of defensive breakdowns to review in their next film session. “This was two humbling losses,” Nets point guard Kyrie Irving said after Friday’s game.
“We just need to find a way to play harder,” Nash said. “Dig deeper. We are not a defensive roster. We have to take more pride, contest more shots, fight, scrap, claw, and that’s what I think is missing as much as anything schematic that we’re breaking down.” Nash added: “I think the bigger message is that just showing up to the gym is not good enough.”
“We’ll try to play 10 guys at least, share the minutes around,” coach Steve Nash said. “Obviously, like I said before last game, it’s hard to contain [minutes] sometimes when you’re in close games. But we’ll do our best, and also try to lean on developing a second unit. “There’s a couple positives to trying to play more guys, go deeper in the rotation, limit or share or spread around the minutes of our big three; Kyrie [Irving] and James. We’ll try to be as cautious as possible. But you know my take on that. Whenever you’re trying to be cautious, it always ends up being impossible.”

Malika Andrews: The Nets have allowed 134 points in the paint over their last 2 games (both against Cleveland). That is their most allowed in any 2-game span over the last 25 seasons. (64 in Wednesday’s game, 70 tonight), per @ESPNStatsInfo.
Jon Krawczynski: Ricky Rubio says the Wolves need a team meeting. “I don’t think we can have more than a 10-minute meeting, but we need like a three-hour meeting. But after talking, we gotta execute the words that we have, or should have.”
