   Anybody Wanna See Second Prize? Second Prize Is A Set Of Steak Knives.....

Jackson has had many, many opportunities to succeed in the NBA so far, but has failed in them all, partly due to injury and partly due to circumstance. In all these years, Luke has managed only 73 NBA games, the most recent of which came in 2007-08, when he was a midseason pick-up on that absolutely horrific Miami team that was making no attempt to win. Jackson spent the 2008-09 season in the D-League, hoping for a return, and then spent last year in Italy, averaging 15.1 points and 5.3 rebounds for Carife Ferrara. He turns 29 in six weeks, and this might be his last chance. He does have one, though.

   Top 101 NBA Ten-Day Contract Candidates (When 20 Would Probably Have Been Enough)

Luke Jackson - Perennial candidate Jackson continues to seek an NBA comeback, which he fleetingly achieved with a training camp contract in Memphis. However, his subsequent trip to the D-League has seen a decline in his numbers. In his fourth consecutive season with the Idaho Stampede, Jackson is averaging 14.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 1.9 steals in 32 minutes per game, but he's doing so on sub-40% shooting. And while Jackson is shooting 36% from three, there are better shooting specialists out there.

Luke Jackson

Jackson is still battling to get back in the NBA, yet it looks like an ever more impossible task. He had a good year in Italy last season, averaging 15.1ppg, 5.3rpg, 2.3apg and 2.1spg, shooting 38% from three point range. Yet in the eyes of the NBA, the book is out on him now. About to turn 29, it's unlikely to change.

This very day, Luke Jackson agreed to sign with Italian team Lottomatica Roma. It's a good gig for him, but it should seal his NBA fate.

Playing for Carife Ferrara, Jackson is averaging 16.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.0 steals per game, shooting 46% from the field, 38% from three and 75% from the line.
