Darnell Jackson headed to the Ukraine

Darnell Jackson is headed abroad.  The free agent big man, who spent last season with the Kings, signed with BC Donetsk in the Ukraine, according to Sportando (via HoopsHype).

BC Donetsk officially announces the signing of Darnell Jackson. The forward has played three seasons and 138 games in the NBA. In the regular season 2010-11 he wore the jersey of Sacramento Kings averaging 3.2ppg and 1.6rpg.

Jackson’s departure makes three overseas defections by Kings players.  Pooh Jeter signed in Spain with FIATC Joventut Badalona in August.  J.J. Hickson left for Israel’s Bnei HaSharon late last month.

Also worth noting, that BC Donetsk’s official website says Jackson is expected to make his debut this Saturday (thanks Google Translate).  If true, that likely means his participation in the Goon Squad Classic is in doubt.
