After joining the Los Angeles Clippers in late February when he was cut loose by the Detroit Pistons, it appears that Reggie Jackson will be back in Tinsel Town for the 2020-21 season.

Jackson has reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with the Clippers, which will bring him back to the team’s backcourt that he was a big part of the previous season.

The 30-year-old point guard, who spent nine seasons playing in the league with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Detroit Pistons, and LA Clippers, is expected to play plenty of minutes this season. He’ll do this while serving as a solid scoring option in the team’s backcourt along with Patrick Beverley and Lou Williams.

His role on the Clippers during the final stretch of the season ended with him averaging 9.5 points, 3.2 assists, and 3 rebounds per game, while serving as a spark plug for their bench. He shot 41.3% from beyond the arc, and helped the relatively mid-range and post-dependent Clippers diversify their offensive game.

Jackson, with his quickness, tenacity, and offensive skill, is expected to be a key part of the Clippers next season. Under new coach Tyronn Lue, Jackson should be a great addition in their attempts to reach an NBA title.
