The Oklahoma City Thunder have picked up Reggie Jackson's option, keeping the guard under contract through the 2013-14 season. General manager Sam Presti announced the move Monday. Jackson averaged 3.1 points and 1.6 assists in 45 games as a rookie last season after he was selected with the 24th overall pick in the 2011 draft.
