Is it possible to create jira custom field that links to a user

Hello, I was wondering if there's a way to create a custom field that links to a user. For instance, say I create a "Select List (single choice)" custom field titled "Games" and add the following options.



Tic Tac Toe

Hang Man


Ideally I would like specific users to link to one of these specific options. Example, if Solitaire is selected the issue is now assigned to Tom. 

Thanks in advance.

This widget could not be displayed.

Try using a "Cascading Select List Field" for this. It is not a user picker field though, just plain old text but it will do what you need.
