Bobby Jackson (born March 13, 1973) is a retired American basketball player and current player development coach for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

College

In 1992, Bobby graduated from Salisbury high school. He went to Western Nebraska CC during 1993-1995 and Minnesota during 1995-1997. In Minnesota, he led the Golden Gophers to the Final Four as they lost to the Kentucky Wildcats.

NBA

Jackson entered the 1997 NBA Draft, and was selected with the 23rd pick by the Seattle SuperSonics (now the Oklahoma City Thunder). His draft rights were traded to the Denver Nuggets. After his rookie season with Denver, he went to the Minnesota Timberwolves where he played for two seasons. Then, he went to the Sacramento Kings for five seasons, the longest he played for a team one time in his career. He was known as "Action Jckson". Jackson sustained an abdominal strain early in the 2004–05 season that forced him to miss 51 games.

After he left Sacramento, he played for the Memphis Grizzlies in 2005-06 NBA season, New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets in 2006-08, and the Houston Rockets during 2008. On July 29, 2008, Bobby was traded back to the Kings for one more season, 2008–09 NBA season. He retired on October 24, 2009.

After playing

After retirement as a player, Jackson became an assistant coach for the Kings. On June 5, 2013, new Kings coach Michael Malone announced that the 2012–13 assistant coaches would not be retained for the 2013–14 NBA season. On September 9, 2013, Jackson was hired by the Minnesota Timberwolves as a player development coach.
