While that might be his REAL value. I don't see Phoenix trading a guy they picked #4 less than two years ago for a 2nd. I don't even see them doing it for a late 1st. It isn't that I believe Jackson is a good player. It is that front offices often get so caught up in sunk cost to give up a high draft pick after only two years. If he were going into the last year of his rookie deal then maybe they would be ready to give up on him, but he has shown just enough this year to give them some hope that he can become a solid shooter. He's shooting 33% from 3 on the season and while I don't believe he is actually that good if I were Phoenix I'd give him a chance to take another jump next year before giving up on someone that could still potentially be a quality 3&D guy.
