Just last week, Reggie Jackson was a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, but the NBA trade deadline saw him moving to a new location.
Jackson was traded to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for big man Mason Plumlee last Thursday, although most reporting said that he would be bought out by the team.

As expected, Jackson and the Hornets have agreed to a contract buyout.
So Jackson is no longer with Charlotte but his next step within the league has become clear: Jackson plans on joining the Denver Nuggets soon.
This will be a big acquisition for the Nuggets, who will gladly welcome Jackson’s special set of skills.
He might not get as many headlines as Stephen Curry or Devin Booker but Jackson is one of the most reliable guards in the league.
His career average is 12.9 points, 3 rebounds, and 4.2 assists.
Over the years, Jackson has done great work for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Detroit Pistons, and Clippers.
Jackson is a terrific ball handler and that is what the Nuggets need right now.
They recently sent away Bones Hyland, an up-and-coming guard who was running plays off the bench.
They traded Hyland for multiple second-round picks after weeks of speculation about him leaving the team.
With Jackson, the Nuggets will receive a reliable and proven guard who can run the floor and call plays and work well with others.
It was expected that Jackson was going to be one of the most-wanted targets on the buyout market so the Nuggets should be quite happy with this addition.
Denver is still the top team in the West and landing Jackson could make them even better.NEXT: Aaron Gordon Had An Epic Night On Thursday
