Justin Jackson (written by @dugger_fern):

Justin Jackson’s inefficiency from the field (37.9% from the floor, 23.7% from the perimeter) must improve, but I was pleased with his Vegas performances. He showed the ability to make three-pointers from NBA range and used his array of floaters to finish around the rim.

Jackson garnered a larger scoring role as teammates sat out games, but won’t be asked to carry the offense for large stretches during the regular season (or take 15.8 shots per game). He should revert to a spot-up shooting role where he can attack closeouts, even though it’s a plus to see Jackson produce with a larger scoring role.

Jackson’s main calling will be his versatility to guard at least three positions on the wing, something he did throughout the summer league. His shooting, defensive potential, and ability to fit a lesser role were the reasons I had him higher than most and slotted him to the Kings in my fit mock draft, so seeing these skills on display was encouraging.

A-. Justin Jackson shot the ball poorly, but at the same time was a big-time scorer for the Kings this summer. Jackson showed the ability to be an asset defensively as well.. Small Forward. Sacramento Kings. JUSTIN JACKSON
