Josh Jackson drew another start on Tuesday night and clanked his way to a 6-of-19 shooting line against the visiting Pistons, salvaging his statline with 15 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and a steal.
We’ve been calling Jackson a great add but he does have the potential to tank your efficiency. The environment in Phoenix is right for a guy of his natural talent to go crazy with the counting stats but it’s hard to imagine a reality where he isn’t hurting your field goal percentage. If that’s a category you desperately need to conserve then you’re free to pass on Jackson, but everyone else should get on the rookie’s bandwagon before his next monster line. He’ll be a nightly double-double threat as long as he’s starting and has the capacity to pick up cash counters by the handful.
