Josh Jackson Scouting Report

(First posted at RealGM)

I wrote about Jackson in January, detailing his athletic prowess in the open court and above the rim and his intelligence passing on the move and in help defense. Those remain his best attributes but he’s shown some signs of improvement regarding one of the gaps in his game: his shooting.

The six-foot-eight combo forward nailed 48% of his 25 three-point shots over the last 10 games. That hot streak led to him finishing the conference part of the schedule with a 43.5% three-point percentage and the overall season at 37.7%.

Those are palatable percentages, for sure, but probably shouldn’t be blown out of proportion. Jackson still only averaged 3.2 three-point shots per 40 minutes and shot only 58% from the foul line against Big 12 competition.
