Van Gundy, Pistons should now focus on G Reggie Jackson


(3/19/2015) With the Pistons all but eliminated from the postseason, nothing is more important at this point in their final games for coach Stan Van Gundy than the progress of guard Reggie Jackson, writes the NBA.com.

The Pistons sent guards Kyle Singler and D.J. Augustin to the Thunder on Feb. 19, clearing the path for Jackson to take over the point guard role. But Jackson's performance to this point has been inconsistent.

"The big thing with him is his aggressiveness and pushing the ball in transition and being aggressive on his pick and rolls," Van Gundy said. "I think when he does that, he's pretty effective. When he's just sort of playing with the ball and a little more tentative, then he runs himself into problems. He over dribbles at times, gets down in traffic. When he's on the attack north-south, I think he's very, very good."

Jackson may have to compete next season with Brandon Jennings, who's been out since late January with a ruptured left Achilles tendon.

We feel we have added talent, toughness and commitment to our roster and we are excited about the depth and versatility these additions provide," Presti said. "It is a rare opportunity to acquire a player like Enes who will be an added dimension to our frontcourt and has his best basketball in front of him. Kyle, D.J. and Steve are professionals of the highest order and players that we believe will be committed now and in the future."

Presti also thanked departing players Kendrick Perkins, Reggie Jackson and Grant Jarrett in the statement. In addition, the Thunder traded a protected 2017 first-round pick to Utah and acquired an unprotected 2019 second-round pick from Detroit.
