Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times confirms the Stephen Jackson signing.

Doc Rivers spoke on the Jackson situation prior to the Philadelphia 76ers game.

“We are close. It’s not done yet. Nothing’s done in our league until it’s done as you know. I just think he’s a veteran. We need him in a pinch. We need him like now. that’s a guy you can bring in and hope he can give you something, like now, with Reggie [Bullock] being out for at least this trip and maybe longer. And Matt [Barnes] maybe being out we don’t have another three right now and he fits that bill for us. A guy who can make shots.”

Jackson confirmed the signing on his Instagram page in a lengthy post followed by himself in a Clippers jersey.
