Re-drafting the 2018 NBA Draft

He has been, to use a clichéd metaphor, the Robin to Ja Morant’s Batman. Jackson has proven himself as a floor spacer, and already showcased a versatile offensive game.

Jackson is one of the higher floor players in this class. He’s already an above-average four, and will likely get more minutes at the five in the future if he can improve on the boards.
