The Denver Nuggets rarely used a three-guard lineup this season as the lack of size hurt their defensive stability. However, the Nuggets should see how Jackson will fit as he’s a seasoned veteran, who had several huge games under his belt even in the playoffs. With that said, Denver will likely want to test how Jackson and Jamal Murray fit together in a lineup with Bruce Brown, Vlatko Cancar and Thomas Bryant.
Jackson has the ability to take advantage of the spacing Murray and Brown offer, as he was at his best in catch-and-shoot situations during the 52 appearances he made with the Clippers in the 2022-23 season. He shot 42% on nearly three catch-and-shoot attempts from deep making the most of it when he was not the main ball handler as he only makes pull-up jumpshots on a 35% clip.
Don’t expect Jackson to attempt any “wild” deep threes the same way that Hyland did this season. However, with his ability in catch-and-shoot situations, Jackson might be able to boost his shooting numbers. With Murray and Brown alongside him, Jackson will be able to stay away from handling the ball, and focus on shooting it efficiently instead.
