Jackson Doesn't Want to Play for Warriors

By  | 

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Whether Stephen Jackson returns to the Golden State Warriors this season is unclear.

As of now, general manager Larry Riley still considers Jackson a key part of the team despite the leading scorer saying he wants to go elsewhere and win.

Jackson, Golden State's leading scorer and emotional swingman, on Friday night told Dime Magazine at an event in New York that he wanted out and had made that known to the Warriors brass. But he
signed a three-year contract extension in November and is someone the Warriors consider an integral part of their long-term plans.

The team initially had no comment Jackson's remarks, but Riley said Monday this isn't the first time Jackson has expressed his desire to play for a winning team.
