Bucks Claim Darnell Jackson
The Bucks have signed Darnell Jackson, formerly of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Jackson (6’9 253, and I don’t know about that 253, more like 275) provides the Bucks with some additional size for the stretch run and will likely backup the Bucks power forwards and possibly could see a minute or two at center.
Ultimately, he’ s an insurance policy and a big body in case something goes wrong up front. He immediately becomes the largest power forward on the Bucks roster. Last week, the Bucks brought in D-Leaguers Shavlik Randolph and Alexander Johnson as insurance at the four, but opted to sign Jackson instead.
Jackson appeared in 27 games for Cleveland this season, and a combined 78 games over the past two seasons with averages of 1.5 points and 1.4 rebounds in 7.0 minutes. He started in two games for the Erie BayHawks (NBDL) this season and averaged 33.0 points and 11.5 rebounds per game.
Since he’s been waived and claimed after March 1st, he will not be eligible for the playoffs.
The Bucks roster now stands at 15.
