   .....Third Prize Is You're Fired

Darnell Edred Jackson has been in the NBA for two full seasons, yet he has managed only 551 minutes in that time. He has 121 total points, but on 116 total shots, and while he has 109 rebounds in that time, he also has 98 fouls. Jackson can make some baskets and rebounds well, but at a not especially athletic 6'8, his defense so far has been mainly fouling. Jackson sticks in the league because of his good rebounding skills, decent offense, and his physique. However, now that he's no longer D-League eligible, and stuck on a team with a plethora of big man talent, it might be impossible to find a minute.

   15 More Ten Day Contract Candidates (Because Apparently 101 Wasn't Enough After All)

In some additional related bookkeeping, the reason for many of the players listed in the previous list was due to the NBA's contract guarantee date. All players on NBA rosters on or after January 10th have their contracts guaranteed for the remainder of the season (future seasons are unaffected); this also includes waivers. In-season waivers are 48 hours long and do not include weekends; therefore, with the 10th of January being a Monday, players had to be waived by close of business on Wednesday 5th in order to have cleared waivers before the deadline date.

Eleven players with not fully guaranteed contracts were waived in the hours before that deadline: Steve Novak, Damien Wilkins, Jarron Collins, John Lucas III, Ime Udoka, Lester Hudson, Ronald Dupree, Brian Skinner, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Sundiata Gaines and Rodney Carney. Twenty seven unguaranteed players survived; Delonte West, Von Wafer, Brian Scalabrine, Samardo Samuels, Manny Harris, Alonzo Gee, Brian Cardinal, Melvin Ely, Gary Forbes, Jeremy Lin, Ish Smith, A.J. Price, Ike Diogu, Luc Richard Mbah A Moute, Ben Uzoh, Didier Ilunga-Mbenga, Shawne Williams, Malik Allen, Garret Siler, Patty Mills, Sean Marks, Darnell Jackson, Chris Quinn, Sonny Weems, Jeremy Evans, Cartier Martin and Hamady Ndiaye. Players with contracts who had already become guaranteed due to specific guarantee stipulations in their contracts were Sherron Collins, Derrick Brown, Josh McRoberts, Willie Warren, Derrick Caracter, Luther Head and Joey Dorsey.

   2010 Summer League Rosters: Milwaukee Bucks

Darnell Jackson

Jackson was claimed off waivers from Cleveland, and has a valid chance of winning a spot in Milwaukee. He's strictly a post player, which is problematic at 6'8, but he can make shots and rebound. However, in bit part minutes of two seasons, Jackson's shown he can only defend via the foul.

   2013 Summer League rosters, Vegas - D-League Select

Darnell Jackson

Jackson hasn't been in the NBA for a few years, but is still trying. He start last year with the Reno Bighorns, went to China for 11 games (18.0 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 3.0 fpg), then finished up the season again with the Bighorns. Now 27 years old, the biggest mark against Jackson's call-up candidacy is that he just doesn't seem to have improved much.
