Free agent point guard Pierre Jackson has reached agreement on a contract with Turkish club Galatasaray, the team announced.

To make room for Jackson, Galatasaray parted ways with former NBA guard/forward R.J. Hunter.

Jackson spent last season in the G League and China. It is believed his contract contains an NBA “out.” Hunter will return to the pool of NBA and G League free agency.
