Reggie Jackson wants a new home.
The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard has asked to be traded before Thursday’s deadline, league sources told Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday.
Jackson’s production has dropped steadily each month this season, falling from 19.5 points per game in November (when he was starting in place of the injured Russell Westbrook) to just 6.3 per game so far in February. He’s also seen his role diminish since the Thunder acquired Dion Waiters from the Cleveland Cavaliers last month.
Jackson, who was drafted in the first round out of Boston College in 2011, is averaging 12.4 points, 4.2 assists and 4.0 rebounds this season. He’s the second Western Conference point guard to reportedly request a trade this week, joining the Phoenix Suns’ Goran Dragic.
