View Full Version : Sources: Jackson to Bobcats

It appears that disgruntled Golden State Warriors forward Stephen Jackson could be Charlotte-bound.

The Warriors are on the verge of completing a deal that would send Jackson and guard Acie Law to the Bobcats in exchange for veteran swingmen Raja Bell and Vladimir Radmanovic, ESPN.com has learned.

Sources close to the situation said that the deal was close to completion and likely to be consummated later Monday. The Cleveland Cavaliers have long been considered the favorites to land the Warriors' former captain in the wake of Jackson's trade demand late in the summer, when Jackson announced that he hoped to be dealt to the Cavaliers, New York Knicks or one of the three Texas teams.

But ESPN.com reported earlier this month that Charlotte had quietly registered serious interest in Jackson and could not be dismissed as a threat to acquire him.

I thought that was why they got rid of Jason Richardson as well. I have no idea on what route the Bobcats are going in. They took on that terrible Diop contract. Traded Richardson's contract away and take on Jacksons.

yeah financially it doesn't make sense..but a trio of Augustin/Jackson/Wallace doesn't sound appealing to you guys? Plus if Tyson Chandler can ever get healthy

You'd think Okafor is Brown's type of player. I can see Jackson vs JRich, the defense.
