|It was my contention pre-draft that we should not use our number 2 pick on Jackson because I felt you could get a player with his attributes much later in the draft. My comp was Jordan Bell.
Both Bell and Jackson are very athletic and fast. Both are great defenders who play hard on that end and both are limited on the offensive end.
Now Bell is starting for the Dubs and playing some great ball. Jackson has struggled on a bad Suns team. Bell is shooting 72% on mainly dunks and Jackson is a Lonzo like 39% overall 24% from 3.
Assist are similar, Bell is ahead in blocks and Jackson in steals.
Will be interesting to see how their development will continue.
