DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have released guard Pierre Jackson from his 10-day contract.

Jackson (5'11, 176) appeared in nine games (one start) for Dallas this season, averaging 3.9 points, 1.0 rebound and 2.1 assists in 9.3 minutes per game. He made his first career in the Mavericks' game at Oklahoma City on Thursday (January 26) and recorded nine points, two rebounds and four assists in 13 minutes before leaving the game in the first half with a left hamstring strain.

Jackson was originally signed by Dallas on December 27, before being waived by the team on January 6 after appearing in four games. He then signed his first 10-day contract with Dallas on January 15 and his second 10-day contract with the club on January 25.

Before his first and second stints with Dallas this season, Jackson appeared in 13 games (all starts) for the Mavericks' D-League affiliate, the Texas Legends. In those 13 contests, he averaged a league-high 29.6 points to go along with 4.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 1.8 steals in 37.4 minutes per game.
