    Default Is Stephen Jackson a Viable Option?

    Considering he wants out of Golden State, not to mention some of his peers their do as well, would you consider acquiring a headcase like Jackson?

    As much as there will always be potential consequences in adding him to any team, the positives sometimes outweigh those consequences. He would definitely help at the SG spot with his defense and might be the type of player we need with respect to his intensity. Or are we panicking still and should just be patience with DeMar, Belinelli and Wright?

    Thoughts?

    OAKLAND, Calif. Ė Having tired of the near-daily disruption Stephen Jacksonís(notes) unresolved status has had on their young roster, the Golden State Warriors are more committed than ever to trading the veteran swingman and NBA sources said the team is optimistic a deal can be completed within the next few weeks.

    Even on a night when the Warriors beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 146-105 while scoring their most points in 15 years, two Golden State players told Yahoo! Sports on Monday that the teamís play Ė and overall morale Ė wonít truly improve until Jackson is gone. Jackson first declared in August he wanted the Warriors to trade him, and his impending departure has become one of a handful of issues hanging over the team.

    The Raptors are too far away from being a contender to make it worthwhile for them taking on a player of Jax's age + contract. Also, the cost of acquiring him (trade). Too large of a commitment.

    The Raptors need to open up ways to acquire top tier talent instead of closing them off. Which is what Jax's contract would do.
