Reggie Jackson sat out Sunday’s Summer League opener for the Oklahoma City Thunder, but decided to join in on the fun Monday morning aganinst the Orlando Magic. And it didn’t take long for Jackson to show off his hops.
Reggie called out for a pick at the top of the key, and managed to lose Victor Oladipo, who tried to fight over the screen. This left Kyle O’Quinn out on an island and Jackson crossed the big man over and got past him. That’s when Moe Harkless decided to leave his man and try to prevent Jackson from an easy layup or dunk. You can see the result in the video below.
Jackson started last season on the Oklahoma City bench, but eventually earned his way into the team’s rotation and shared the backup point guard role with Derek Fisher. When Russell Westbrook went down in the postseason, Jackson saw a lot more minutes and didn’t disappoint. In the 2012-13 playoffs, the young guard averaged 13.9 points, 4.9 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game.
