Jackson Seeks New Contract

With Monta Ellis out of commission for a few months, Warriors management might want to pay Stephen Jackson a few more bucks to keep him around and happy.  However if negotiations fail, I think Jackson should do figure eight’s on a moped real slow in the Warriors parking lot for leverage. 

“By the time the Warriors open the regular season a week from today, Stephen Jackson hopes to have a new contract in hand. Jackson said Tuesday that extension talks with Warriors President Robert Rowell were progressing smoothly and believes it’s a matter of when – not if – the two sides reach an agreement. The Warriors’ captain, who is signed through next season, is seeking the maximum allowed under the NBA’s collective bargaining agreement, which limits the number of years and annual pay raises that can be added to an existing deal.”
