Pierre Jackson First Practice

After a two hour practice at Pierre Jackson’s old high school, we got to pick the brains of Summer League Head Coach Bryan Gates and rookie Pierre Jackson for a couple of minutes.

I wonder if I'm the only one who thinks Pierre Jackson looks like a young LeBron James? Smaller, of course.

nice to see Rivers shooting the FT's too!! hel'l pick up 7-10 more PPG as often as he gets into the lane and to the basket.  encouraging. he did better in the 1st SL game 7-11.

Thanks Mike!  Even got to see Monty working with Withey in the background.  Gates was pleased with Withey's athleticism, which has been noted in various articles as due in part to his beach volleyball background growing up in San Diego.  Seems like we've got some bigs who run the court well, which will further enhance the get-up-and-go of our new squad!
