Darnell Jackson, a starter on Kansas University’s 2008 NCAA championship basketball team, has been farmed out by the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The 6-foot-8, 250-pound Jackson was assigned to Erie, Pa., of the NBA Development League on Monday. He played in 24 games for the Cavs, averaging 1.0 points and 1.2 rebounds, starting slowly after breaking a bone in his left wrist last October.
Jackson was selected by Miami with the No. 52 overall pick in last year’s draft. The Cavs acquired him for a 2009 second-round pick.
