Stephen Jackson Next Player to Leave the Warriors?


Bucher is close to Stephen Jackson. I’ve reported that Nelson and SJax had an argument at shoot-around on the day of the Orlando home game last week, which SJax subsequently denied.

I was sure of it when I wrote about it, sure of it when SJax denied it, and have never once doubted it.

But now Buc is reporting the exact same thing. So… this story is basically confirmed twice, as far as I’m concerned.

* Which leads to… Buc writes that SJax is telling teammates he wouldn’t mind being traded. I believe SJax denied my initial report because he and Nelson realize that trading SJax is already borderline impossible with the Rowell gift contract extension.
