NBA Draft 2011: Reggie Jackson Drafted No. 24 Overall By Thunder

Reggie Jackson has been drafted No. 24 overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder in the 2011 NBA Draft on Wednesday night at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

Jackson, a combo guard from Boston College, averaged 18.2 points, 4.5 assist, 4.3 rebounds and 1.1 steals with the Eagles last season. In addition, Jackson shot 50.3 percent from the field and 42 percent from three-point range.

"The amazing thing for Reggie has been his IQ for the game," Boston College head coach Steve Donahue told WEEI.com. "I think he has a great feel for the game."

Here's some analysis on Jackson from Paul Flannery of Green Street on WEEI.com.

Local hoop fans already know all about Jackson, who had a standout junior year, averaging 18 points and enjoying a huge upturn in his 3-point shooting from 29 percent as a sophomore to 42 percent as a junior. Jackson isn't a pure point guard but he is a guard in the traditional sense. Perhaps most intriguing about Jackson is his wingspan, which has been measured at 7 feet. That length, combined with his athletic ability and on-court savvy could make for a destructive defensive-minded guard with scoring ability. In a best-case scenario Jackson has the skills to help a team this year. (via WEEI)
