Jackson helped lead North Carolina to a national championship last season in college, his junior year, averaging 18.3 points on 37.0 percent from beyond the arc. He also posted 4.7 rebounds and 2.8 dimes across 32.0 minutes per game. In joining the Kings, he fills a hole for the team at small forward after the team opted to let a handful of wing players walk without protest. At 6-foot-8 and just 200 pounds, Jackson’s small-ball power forward potential is low at the moment considering his lanky frame. He also doesn’t project as having much potential as a shooting guard considering his average athleticism, which may cause him issues defensively at the NBA level. While he’s shown impressive skill as an off-ball cutter, his subpar ability as a ballhandler severely limits his upside as an isolation or pick and roll player. His lack of strength and explosiveness will also likely make it difficult for him to finish at the rim – he often settled for floaters in college. Jackson also wasn’t a particularly great rebounder or defender against NBA-level wings at North Carolina. He’s certainly raw, but should still see rotational minutes with the Kings next season. That said, the noted holes in Jackson’s game make him a risky Fantasy option.
