Report: Clippers likely suitor for Reggie Jackson if he’s bought out by Pistons
Reggie Jackson is still assessing whether to pursue a buyout or complete his Detroit Pistons contract, but the Los Angeles Clippers have emerged as a likely suitor if the point guard does get a buyout from his current team, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.
Jackson is making $18.1 million this season, the final year of his deal. He will enter unrestricted free agency in the summer.

Jackson has played in only 10 games for the Pistons this season entering the team’s Friday matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder. He has been dealing with a back injury he suffered in the second game of the season.
The 29-year-old guard is averaging 14.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists while shooting 37.5 percent from the field, 40.4 percent from beyond the arc and 78.3 percent from the free-throw line.
The Clippers acquired Marcus Morris from the New York Knicks at the deadline. They will likely be competing for Darren Collison’s services with the Los Angeles Lakers, that is unless Jackson joins them.
Jackson has been with the Pistons since February 2015. The Thunder traded him to Detroit, where he eventually signed a multi-year contract.
