With an eye to the immediate future, the Lakers said goodbye to part of their past, signing free-agent swingman Jim Jackson and waiving injured forward Slava Medvedenko. Jackson, 35, will be asked to add a veteran presence and outside touch to a team that has shot inconsistently throughout the season but is fighting for a playoff spot. On his 12th team in 14 seasons, Jackson played in 27 games this season before being released by the Phoenix Suns last week, averaging 3.7 points and 2.

Devean George severely sprained his right wrist in the Lakers' 103-96 loss to San Antonio on Monday and might miss tonight's game at New Orleans. It's uncertain when George, who scored two points on one-of-six shooting against the Spurs, injured his wrist, but if he can't play against the Hornets, veteran Jim Jackson said he would be ready to make his Laker debut. "I'm in good shape because all I've been doing is working out a lot," said Jackson, 35, who hasn't played in a game since Jan.

Jim Jackson, the leading scorer for the United States men's basketball team, will miss the remainder of Pan American Games because of a stress fracture in his left foot. Jackson, who will be a junior at Ohio State, returned with the team from Miami Wednesday night with his foot in a cast. He had X-rays and a bone scan taken after practicing with the team Wednesday morning. Doctors then decided to put the foot in a cast. "The doctors said it would be better if I didn't play," Jackson said.

Jim Jackson's clown character, Sole, can juggle Ping-Pong balls with his mouth or ride a six-foot unicycle. But when it comes to standing on solid ground, he's a total klutz. Jackson, who spent years as a circus performer, brings his one-man circus to Ventura this weekend for a Saturday afternoon performance at the Ventura College Theater. The hourlong show, sponsored by the Ventura Children's Festival, is a mixed bag that blends theater, comedy and circus.

The Dallas Mavericks, who went six weeks without a head coach and all season without their No. 1 draft choice, landed both Thursday, hiring Quinn Buckner and signing Jim Jackson. Buckner, now an NBC commentator, will take over next season. Interim Coach Gar Heard will remain in charge for the rest of the season. Jackson will report immediately, breaking his vow never to play for the Mavericks and to go through the draft again after they failed to meet his negotiations deadline last week.

Jim Jackson arrived in town, passed his physical and, the Lakers hope, remembered to bring his jump shot with him. The 14-year veteran hasn't played in a game since Jan. 4 but was picked up for a relatively minimal financial investment after being cut last week by the Phoenix Suns. He walked through some plays during Monday morning's shoot-around and re-familiarized himself with the triangle offense, which he ran with Dallas for part of his first four years in the league.

The Dallas Mavericks cleaned out the rest of their house Monday night, making a staggering nine-player trade that sent Jim Jackson, Chris Gatling and three others to the New Jersey Nets for center Shawn Bradley and three others. In addition to the 7-foot-6 Bradley, Dallas got point guards Robert Pack and Khalid Reeves and forward Ed O'Bannon. The Nets also received guard Sam Cassell, guard-forward George McCloud and center Eric Montross.

After the Lakers had it all go wrong but the result, a process Phil Jackson would call "misery," Shaquille O'Neal nearly took the basketball with him, off the floor, past the bench, through the tunnel, just away from the Houston Rockets. Instead, he slammed it to the floor and shook his head, this more difficult than perhaps he believed it would be. O'Neal's rebound and dunk with 17.
