PJC spent last season rehabbing a leg injury and trying out for the Raptors' G League team, but Cheshire Phoenix coach Ben Thomas expressed optimism he would be a big part of his team next season.
“I’m really happy that we have been able to bring a player of Parker’s caliber to the Phoenix," Thomas said in a club statement posted to Facebook. "I think this really shows our ambition and makes a statement for our season.
“Parker is going to bring a lot to our team. Firstly he is an outright point guard with lightning pace, he will be able to control the tempo of the game for us which is something that we have been looking for this season.”
In a post to Instagram, Jackson-Cartwright said he was excited for the new opportunity with the "Nix."
