OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Don Nelson says the Golden State Warriors will consider trading Stephen Jackson if the team can find the right situation.

Until then, Nelson will embrace Jackson despite Golden State's leading scorer and top defender saying he wanted to be dealt to a winner.

Jackson will remain a captain for the Warriors this season as long as he's in the Bay Area. Nelson said Friday he doesn't expect the emotional swingman to be a distraction in the locker room for a young roster.

Last month, Jackson 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 had considered an integral part of their long-term plans.
