According to Mark Deeks of Shamsports.com, the 76ers have officially signed injured guard Pierre Jackson. Remember, Jackson tore his achilles, which ended his season, during the Orlando Pro Summer League.
UPDATE: Pierre Jackson’s deal is for one-year and is almost fully guaranteed.
Jackson isn’t expected to play at all this season, although he has already had surgery on his achilles.
Pierre Jackson has the opportunity to be an explosive impact player for 76ers, so this is showing that the 76ers felt confident enough in his abilities to recover from his injury. He will be able to come into camp when he recovers and attempt to do what he would have done this season — prove why he belongs in the NBA.
