All Kings' Coach Reggie Theus has been hearing about this summer is how much the community is excited about the return of guard Bobby Jackson.
"Bobby Jackson, Bobby Jackson, Bobby Jackson," Theus said. "I say, 'guys, that was eight years ago. He can still play. But that was a long time ago.' The good thing is, I've talked to Bobby and explained to him how important his presence is going to be in the locker room. It's going to be enormous. It's important to mentor the young guys the right way, and a lot of our success is going to depend on how quickly the young guys develop."
Jackson played for the Kings from 2000-05, starting 36 games over his five seasons.
