Mavs to sign Texas Legends guard Pierre Jackson to two-year deal

The Dallas Mavericks are signing Texas Legends points guard Pierre Jackson to a partially guaranteed two-year deal, sources tell Shams Charania of  The Vertical.

To make room for Jackson, the Mavs will likely waive guard Jonathan Gibson, with their roster standing at the 15-player league maximum. Gibson has appeared in 17 contests for Dallas this season, averaging 6.2 points and 1.5 assists.

Since being drafted 42nd overall in the 2013 NB draft by the Philadelphia 76ers, Jackson has bounced around the league. He was part of a draft day trade that ultimately landed him with the New Orleans Pelicans. Since then, he has spent time overseas, playing in Turkey and Croatia, along with a couple of stints with the Idaho Stampede of the NBA D-League.

Jackson was acquired by the Legends in November, playing 10 games while averaging scoring a league-leading 29.1 points to go along with 6.0 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
