The Miami Heat reportedly had strong interest in Jackson leading up to the draft, but he didn't fall that far.
Here's analysis of pick from ESPN.com's Chad Ford:
Jackson hasn't worked out for one team. Didn't do physicals. No interviews or psych tests. And he still goes No. 24. The Heat are bummed. They shut him down to keep him out of the first round, but it didn't work. It's a great pick for the Thunder. He's long and athletic, and he can shoot the basketball. A very underrated player.
