Philly has been busy tonight. Pierre Jackson will not stay with the Sixers, but they did pick up Nate Wolters.
Regardless, Pierre Jackson is easily a first-round pick if it weren’t for his 5’10″ size. With the ability to knock down shots, explosive athleticism, and leadership, Jackson will make an NBA roster and likely contribute as a rookie.
As a sophomore at Baylor, Jackson averaged 19.8 points on 36% shooting from behind the arc and 7.1 assists.
