How's Justin Jackson's Perimeter Defense?

CHAT Sports says it's good, but I've heard from people on here that it's bad. I'll be honest, I wasn't really paying attention to his defense last year, I just wanted to see what he could do on offense, so any kind of insight you all can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Can't stay in front of anyone. Same level of defense of Broekhoff. May still be better than Roby, tho. Not as good as TH or Luka.

Raw. He has quickness but not savvyness (is that even a word?). He should learn not to fall for small fakes/crossovers too much. Has good length also.

Similar to Luka, who leaps in front of an attacking player even though the guy is doing basic crossover. But Luka is slower footed than JJax.

Raw is a good way to describe it. He’s passable, but you can’t ever expect him to lock anyone up

Thanks fellas, I appreciate it. I figured that if he was a good defender, then Sacramento wouldn't have let him go.
