Magic Fans Like Undersized Point Guards! "Here Is One To Trade For"


Let me start by stating this, I have had disagreements on the pinstriped Post regarding undersized point guards. It's not that I don't think they can succeed, in fact I would concede that it has been proven that they can. My opposition could be summed up in a simple analogy. If your family was being attacked in a zombie apocalypse, you could defend them with a nice pistol, or you could have an m-16 with an attached grenade launcher! Sure both would get the job done, but I'm guessing we'd all pick the m-16! Now that's out of the way let's get to the man of the hour.

Pierre Jackson of Baylor was drafted 42nd by the Pelicans in the 2013 draft. He is the epitome of an undersized point guard, standing 5'11" at 176 pounds. He has been by most accounts the mvp of the D League this season. Jackson is lightning quick with elite athleticism! He has been averaging 30 points per game, dishing 4.6 assist and nabbing 2.3 steals per game. His three point shooting has been the real story, shooting to the tune of .381% year to date. These achievements have led Pierre Jackson's representatives to seek permission from Pelicans front office to obtain a trade. They are searching for a deal that could catapult the young guard onto an NBA roster. As reported by Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, it seems that their wish has come true.

With the well documented need for the Magic to add talent at the point guard position, what would it take to obtain his services, and would we want him?
