Point guard Reggie Jackson plans to sign with the Denver Nuggets after his contract buyout with the Charlotte Hornets becomes official. The Los Angeles Clippers traded the veteran point guard to the Charlotte Hornets ahead of the 2022-23 NBA Trade Deadline for center Mason Plumlee and a second-round draft pick. With the guard assets the Clippers acquired in other deals, the move made sense for them. Charlotte already has a young rotation of guards and is not currently in contention for an NBA Playoff spot. Denver though is hoping this helps them compete for an NBA Championship this season.

This season with the Los Angeles Clippers, Reggie Jackson averaged 10.9 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 3.5 assists per game. He paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 41.8 percent and a three-point percentage of 35 percent. Jackson has plenty of experience and can slot into a backup role fairly easily for the Nuggets this season. With Denver currently sitting at number one in the Western Conference Standings, they are looking to add this depth heading into the back part of the regular season and heading into the 2023 NBA Playoffs. Jackson could be invaluable during that time.
