2021 NBA Draft: IND picks Isaiah Jackson No. 22 after trade with WAS

The Indiana Pacers (from the Lakers, via the Wizards) have selected Isaiah Jackson with the No. 22 overall pick in the NBA Draft. This pick has moved from the Lakers to the Wizards in the Russell Westbrook trade, and now will go to Indiana in a separate trade, sending Aaron Holiday and the No. 31 pick to the Wizards.

ANALYSIS: Due to his length and leaping ability, Isaiah Jackson is a premier rim protector. He will need to add physical strength, but his presence in the interior is felt on both ends with his mobility and explosion. A bit raw on the offensive end, he's flashed decent touch and the ability to play above the rim. Jackson could serve as an effective rim protector, rim runner, and roaming big.
