Pierre Jackson, a second-round pick of the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2013 NBA draft, has been absolutely lighting it up for the Idaho Stampede of the D-League. Through 17 games, he's averaging 30.1 points, 4.8 assists and 2.2 steals on 45.7 percent shooting and 38.1 percent from downtown.
“I’ve been through a lot of obstacles in my playing career,” Jackson said during halftime of one of his games. “I achieved a lot but I’m still willing to do more.” (H/T Realgm.com)
That wait might be over shortly, as Yahoo! Sports Marc Spears has reported via Twitter that the "Pelicans granted permission to reps of the D-League's leading scorer Pierre Jackson to find a trade."
Based on his monster senior year at Baylor, where he averaged 19.8 points and 7.1 assists, and now this eruption in the D-League, it seems safe to assume that a few teams might come calling.
Here are six teams who should at least pick up the phone and see what Jackson would cost.
