Former Baylor Bears point guard Pierre Jackson, who was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers and then traded to the New Orleans Pelicans, will be taking his talents to France.
Jackson took to twitter to confirm a rumor that has been floating around for a few weeks that he will be playing for ASVEL Villeurbanne. ASVEL is partially owned by San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker.
Jackson played in three summer league games for the Pelicans and averaged 3.7 points.
Welp everyone it's official in a couple days I will be going to France to play my first professional… http://t.co/r320RxEiEI
