I wasn’t able to get a hold of Stephen Jackson, but I did confirm with a team source (and another NBA player) that Jax wants out of Golden State. He’s even hired an agent to find him a trade.
After proclaiming aloud that he didn’t think he’d be with the Warriors next season — before a crowd at a Protege block party in New York, no less — he told Dime Mag that the Warriors know about his desires to bounce.
Here are the highlights of his Dime Mag interview.
On when he made the decision
“It’s not about a decision I made. It’s just things are in the air right now. I really can’t get too much into it right now, but I’m just looking to go somewhere where I can go and win a championship.”
On where he wants to play
“Either Cleveland, anywhere in Texas or out here with Al (Harrington) in New York.”
On being in Nellie’s system
“I loved it. It gave me a chance to show everything I could do on the court. It was great for me, but at this point, I’m 31 years old. I have four or five years left, I want to be in a situation where I can continually be in the playoffs and get another ring. So that’s where my mind is at now.”
