The Lakers announced that they have signed Demetrius Jackson on Tuesday. According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, the training camp invite will be an Exhibit 10 contract.
Jackson began his NBA career in 2016 after a collegiate career at Notre Dame, including as a teammate of former Lakers Summer Leaguer Zach Auguste. Since 2016, he has played a total of 26 games with the Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers. In those matches, the 24-year-old averaged 1.8 points, 0.7 rebounds and 0.7 assists in just 5.2 minutes per game.
Jackson is a 6-foot-1 point guard who spent last season with the Delaware Blue Coats of the G League. In eight games, Jackson averaged 19.4 points, 7.4 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game while shooting 44.8 percent from the field and 30.6 percent from the 3-point line.
The Exhibit 10 designation means that if Jackson is cut during training camp, he will be incentivized t sign with the South Bay Lakers with some guaranteed money.
Jackson is the Lakers 20th and last player on the training camp roster. He joins the likes of Jordan Caroline, DeVontae Cacok and Aric Holman as Exhibit 10 deals given out this summer.
