Daily Links, Welcome Reggie Jackson June 24, 2011

Reggie Jackson ecstatic about coming to OKC “Well obviously I’m ecstatic, I’ve been drafted in the first round by a great organization and I feel truly blessed,” Jackson said. “I’m pretty excited about going to a team that can win a championship for many years.

Coach Brooks holds clinic back home Brooks said he’d go to the gym every night from seventh grade through high school, and he “didn’t do a very nice thing by keeping the door open after hours and sneaking in.”

HoopsWorld gives it’s grades Oklahoma City got a very good and undervalued player in Reggie Jackson who they can turn around and make a tradable asset or they can use as leverage to move Eric Maynor.  Given it was their only selection, it was a very good use of what they had.

Sporting News gives the Thunder a B Guard Reggie Jackson might have gone higher had he worked out for other teams, but the Thunder targeted him and got him.

USA breaks down the Western Conference selection They desired another scorer to bolster their bench, which is why they took athletic combo guard Reggie Jackson.

CBSSports.com says The Thunder get a B- Jackson is a good value pick. The knock will be that he didn’t fill a need for the Thunder … but look at their roster. Who are you going to take minutes away from to give to a rookie? No one. So this pick didn’t matter and they still got value from it.

Pro Basketball News analyzes the Western Got a promise from the Thunder, who loved his wingspan and excellent stroke. Still, after watching the playoffs unfold, it’s interesting that the choice is another scoring point guard and that Eric Maynor was reportedly dangled in deals. Nate Robinson is under contract for one more year, too.

Boston Globe talks about the pick Yet he joins a crowded backcourt that already features Westbrook and defensive stopper Thabo Sefolosha in the starting lineup and has James Harden and Eric Maynor established off the bench.
