The 29-year-old guard is averaging 14.9 points and 5.1 assists over 14 games this season. He missed a significant amount of time due to a stress reaction in his lower back.
Jackson brings veteran experience and playmaking ability to the Clippers’ guard rotation. According to Wojnarowski, the Lakers were also interested in landing the ninth-year guard, who started his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Clippers (37-18) are off until they host the Sacramento Kings on Saturday.
