Stats at NBA.com
Darnell Edred Jackson (born November 7, 1985Oklahoma City, Oklahoma) is an American professional basketball player for BC Donetsk in Ukraine. He is 6'9" and is 253 lbs. Jackson played for the University of Kansas in college for four seasons, including the 2008 national championship team. He did not become a regular starter at Kansas until the 2007–08 season (his senior year), when he replaced Sasha Kaun in the starting lineup.in
Jackson, who did not begin playing basketball until the ninth grade, was called one of the most improved players in the nation after averaging 6.7 rebounds during his senior season at Kansas in 2007-08. He attracted some attention from NBA scouts after several breakout performances, including a 25-point, 9-rebound effort against Boston College. After this performance, he was named the co-winner of the Phillips 66 Big XII Player of the Week.
In 2005, Jackson's sophomore year, Jackson was suspended for nine games for accepting payments from Kansas booster Don Davis, a family friend. This was part of a rough year for him, as his grandmother had been killed by a drunk driver earlier in 2005. After scoring, Jackson often thumped his chest three times. Symbolically, one of the thumps was for Jackson's grandmother, one was for his mother, and one was for Davis.
He played a big role in the Jayhawks' 2008 championship season, leading the team in rebounds and shooting percentage.
Drafted and signed by Cleveland
Jackson was selected as the 52nd overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat on June 26. He was traded to the Cavaliers on the same day. Interestingly, Sasha Kaun, his former Jayhawks teammate and fellow 2008 draft pick, was also acquired by the Cavaliers (from the Seattle Sonics), although as of May 2011, Kaun has never played in the NBA. Jackson was signed by the team on September 6, 2008.
2008 NBA Summer League
Jackson played for the Cavs during the NBA (National Basketball Accociation) Summer League in Las Vegas, Nevada. In five games (four starts) he averaged 5.8 points and 5.4 rebounds in 24.6 minutes per game.
Jackson broke his wrist during the preseason and was inactive for the first 13 games of the Cavaliers' regular season. Jackson made his professional debut on November 25, 2008 against the New York Knicks. In six minutes of play, he scored four points on a perfect 2-2 from the field and grabbed two rebounds. On February 9, 2009, Jackson was assigned by the Cavs to their affiliate D-League team, the Erie Bayhawks. He played one game before being recalled back to the Cavs, a day later. In his only game with Erie, Jackson scored a game-high 24 points (on 10-of-14 field goals) in 26 minutes in a 101–89 win over Utah.
On February 24, 2010, Jackson was assigned to the Erie BayHawks of the NBA D-League. On February 26, 2010, Jackson was recalled by the Cavaliers after Shaquille O'Neal sustained a significant thumb injury against the Boston Celtics on February 25. Jackson was sent down again on March 20, and recalled the next day. On March 23, he was waived by Cleveland due to the return of star center Zydrunas Ilgauskas. He was then claimed off waivers by the Milwaukee Bucks.
