According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, the Denver Nuggets are interested in signing veteran guard, Reggie Jackson.

Amick mentions the New Orleans Pelicans, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Clippers as teams that are also interested in Jackson. It will all depend on where Kyle Lowry signs, but all signs point to him going to the Miami Heat.

For teams that miss out on Lowry they might pay more to sign Jackson, which could put him out of the Nuggets price range. It would be an interesting fit if Denver signed Jackson as he would bring them another veteran guard to bring off the bench or possibly start at shooting guard depending on what happens with Will Barton in free agency.

Jackson is a local guy having played high school basketball at General William J. Palmer High School in Colorado Springs. In 2007-08, Jackson was named Gatorade Colorado Boys Player of the Year then went on to play college basketball at Boston College. Jackson came into the NBA back in 2011 with the Oklahoma City Thunder and has since made stops with the Detroit Pistons and Los Angeles Clippers.

This past season was one to remember for Jackson as he averaged 20.3 points per game in the Western Conference Finals. Once Kawhi Leonard went down, Jackson stepped up and formed a nice 1-2 punch with Paul George that almost led the Clippers to the NBA Finals.

What do you think Nuggets fans, would Jackson be a nice fit with the Nuggets?
