WTF ever happened to Luke Jackson? He was supposed to be a pretty athletic player with a jumpshot, and he couldn't even beat out players like Ira Newble and Sasha Pavlovic for playing time.

Did his injury effect his game or was he just a bust?

Supposedly he can shoot and he can jump. That and that he's done nothing for the Cavs is all I know about him, but Jones was going to get cut, so this looks like a worthwhile move.

Jones wasn't gonna play for the C's, and most likely Jackson wont either.

Cavs suckered the Cs into taking on Luke's guaranteed salary.

Cavs win the trade unless Jones has a guaranteed deal as well. I dont think he does tho. Johnny? Buckets?

Jones doesn't have a guaranteed deal but Ainge is no sucker here. What does two million matter in today's NBA? In fact, if Jackson isn't given a qualifying offer he becomes a two million-dollar expirer that could prove useful in making another trade later in the year.

I like this trade from the cavs perspective, Luke wasn't going anywhere and would have been dropped after this season in any case, this way we save some salary and have an extra big body or maybe just someone to cut, either way as an Luke would do is take up time from more promising players it's a win/win situation.

yeah i like it from cleveland's end too. luke jackson was going nowhere quick. i doubt he has it in him from a talent perspective. if you have to outhustle and outwork everyone to get your shot off and you are always hurt with a bad back it just ain't gonna happen. he seems like a nice guy though so i wish him the best in boston. maybe he can get some danny ainge in his blood and build a career. but he was a paxson mistake in cleveland and only got cheers for one reason but i won't say it. on the other hand i don't know anything about this big kid we picked up. gooden and anderson is gonna make a nice double-headed power forward so all we really need is some rebounding, smart defense, and 6 hard fouls out of this kid. he and pollard have to be general z's armor units.

He is a good low risk player for the Celts.

Was Luke Jackson taken in the same draft as Josh Smith?

Luke Jackson was a BEAST when he played for the ducks...he was very "blue collar" he always got the job done, lead the team in points, rebounds and assist and was very scrappy. i thought he would be successfull in teh NBA as a solid role player that would compliment a big star such as LBJ. It's all the injuries he has had the last couple years, kind of reminds me of dajuan wagner.
