Per Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Suns are among them as they look to put more pieces around star forward Kevin Durant, fellow point guard Chris Paul and shooting guard Devin Booker.

Also, per Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report, the Suns and Jackson share a mutual interest.

Along with that, the Western Conference-leading Nuggets have Jackson on their buyout radar, per Mike Singer of the Denver Post. With the Suns landing Durant, the Nuggets may be looking to add more veterans for a playoff run.

Jackson, 32, is averaging 10.9 points and 3.5 assists in 52 games. The Clippers sent him to the Hornets in exchange for center Mason Plumlee. Jackson spent the first four seasons of his career with the Thunder after being drafted with the No. 24 overall pick in 2011. He then played six for the Pistons and was in his fourth with the Clippers.

Players must be waived by March 1 to be eligible for another team’s playoff roster.
