In eight summer league appearances in Utah and Las Vegas, Demetrius Jackson averaged 5.3 points, 2 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1 steal in 16.6 minutes per game. 

Boston is essentially protecting its investment and utilizing available money to ensure Jackson stays under the team's long-term control. Second-round picks often settle for two-year deals at the minimum salary, which would pay only NBA 2K17 MT  this season. Teams are more commonly shunning these deals because over-performing second-round picks are in position to be signed away after two seasons, as drafting teams have only limited early Bird rights with which to retain them.
