Spurs: Grading 8 free agent point guard options from 'no thanks' to 'sign now'
By Tyler Watts
8. Reggie Jackson
Jackson is a 12-year NBA veteran that played a key role in the Clippers reaching the conference finals in 2021. The 6-foot-2 guard has primarily been a starter over the last eight years, but he was traded and bought out in February before signing with the Nuggets. Jackson has been out of Denver’s rotation in the playoffs, but he is a proven scorer and playmaker.
Head Coach Gregg Popovich once called Jackson “the Spurs killer”. Could the 33-year-old translate that praise into a contract in San Antonio? Jackson will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, and the Spurs have plenty of cap space to pursue him if they beleive he fits their vision for buidling a roster around Wembanyama.
Verdict: Worth a glance
The San Antonio Spurs need veterans to round out their roster if they plan on taking a step forward in 2024. Reggie Jackson has played in the conference finals twice along with being a steady NBA contributor and suiting up next to some of the league’s best players. He would certainly give San Antonio a veteran presence that could run an offense coming off the bench.
