Sixers add point guard Jackson on two-way pact

Demetrius Jackson has signed a two-way deal with the Sixers.

The Philadelphia 76ers have re-signed guard Demetrius Jackson to a two-way deal, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports

The 6-foot-1, 201-pound point guard, Jackson played in three games for the 76ers last season after playing 12 for the Houston Rockets.

Combined, the 23-year-old Jackson averaged 1.1 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 5.3 minutes, shooting38.9 percent from the field, 14.3 percent from deep and 50.0 percent from the free-throw line.

Jackson was the 45th overall selection in the 2016 draft out of Notre Dame by the Boston Celtics, for whom he played five games in 2016-17.

He joins Shake Milton, signed Thursday, as two-way players for the Sixers.
