About

Justin Jackson, 6’8″, 210 pound forward from the University of North Carolina. He was an early entry into the draft, who was selected in the first round (15th overall) by the Portland Trailblazers. However, his draft rights were acquired by the Kings in exchange for the draft rights to Zach Collins the night of the draft

During his college career at North Carolina, Jackson was one of two Tar Heels players with 1,600 career points, 150 three-pointers, 400 rebounds and 300 assists (Rick Fox, 1987-91). As a junior, he was selected as a consensus First Team All-American and ACC Player of the Year while helping UNC win its sixth national title. Jackson is one of three Tar Heels to win ACC POY and a national championship in the same season. He led the Tar Heels in scoring (18.3 ppg) during the regular season while averaging a career-high 4.7 rebounds per game along with 2.8 assists per game. Also, he set UNC single-season record with 105 three-pointers on during the Tar Heel’s run to the national championship.

After one year with the Kings, Jackson was traded to the Mavericks for Harrison Barnes on January 31st, 2019. Since joining the Mavs, Jackson has been shooting almost 50% from the field while averaging 18 minutes per game. Justin Jackson is a member of the young Mavericks squad looking to make a big jump in 2019-2020.
