Clips’ Frank on Jackson: ‘Reggie elevates our team with his energy, his confidence, and his ability to be at his best in the biggest moments’

The Los Angeles Clippers have officially re-signed Reggie Jackson, the team announced on Wednesday.

According to reports, it’s a two-year deal worth $22 million.

“Reggie elevates our team with his energy, his confidence, and his ability to be at his best in the biggest moments,” said the president of basketball operations, Lawrence Frank. “He was an important part of our team last season, and he will continue to be going forward.”

The 31-year-old Jackson resurrected his career in Los Angeles. Last season, he averaged 10.7 points, 3.1 assists, and 2.9 rebounds per game, shooting a career-high 43.3 percent from beyond the arc.

Jackson stepped up in the playoffs. He averaged 17.8 points, 3.4 assists, and 3.2 rebounds while shooting 40.8 percent from three. During the postseason, Jackson ranked second in the NBA in total three-pointers made (58) and 10th in total points (338) and plus-minus (+107). 

The 10-year veteran holds career averages of 12.6 points, 4.2 assists, and 2.9 rebounds in 628 appearances across 10 NBA seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Detroit Pistons, and Clippers. 

Jackson was huge for the Clippers in the playoffs, so re-signing him was a no-brainer for Los Angeles.
