San Antonio Spurs Acquire Stephen Jackson From Golden State

Stephen Jackson is headed back to San Antonio.  The Spurs have traded Richard Jefferson and a first round pick to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for Jackson.  Jefferson is a bit cheaper than Jackson, which helps Golden State set up for the future.

Jackson won a title with the Spurs and he’s a favorite of head coach Gregg Popovich.  Jackson has barely played in over a month, but he could be a big help to the Spurs down the stretch.

The trade deadline is fast approaching and the deals are coming hard and fast.  Stay tuned for more breaking news as it develops.
