According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and several US media outlets, Memphis inside Jaren Jackson Jr. will sign a four-year, $ 105 million contract extension with the Grizzlies.
Jaren Jackson, 4th pick in the 2018 draft, is a talented and promising interior but whose start to his career has been slowed down by injuries. Last season, the 22-year-old (2.11 m, 110 kg) played only 11 games, the fault of a knee injury in the Orlando bubble earlier in the year (meniscus tear) .
Since his debut, he still has 15.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 against on average per game. A good three-point shooter, his return to form, like his duet with point guard Ja Morant, are the foundations of the Grizzlies’ rebuilding.
