The Dallas Mavericks continued attempts to strengthen the position of point guard, this time signing an agreement with Pierre Jackson.

Given this, the management of Dallas urgently proposed a two-year partially guaranteed contract point guard Pierre Jackson. 25-year-old basketball player was a candidate for the draft in 2013, where he was selected under 42 m Philadelphia.

However, not a single game for the Sixers, he has not played, going in the D-League. After his career was a trip to Europe (Fenerbahce), briefly returning to the development League and Europe again. This season he started in the composition of the Croatian Cedevita. Later, Jackson again tried to gain a foothold in the NBA, zastaviv a starting point guard in the farm club Dallas Texas Ledgens. His averages here comprised 29.1 points, 6 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game, which apparently impressed the management of the Mavericks.
