Stephen Jackson reportedly had a chance to get a much-coveted seat on the Golden State coaching bench, but turned it down because he wants to play.

Let’s just say there was skepticism about his return to the NBA at age 38 — he last played in 2014 when he got in nine games for the Clippers. Who was going to give him a chance?

Some team is, according to a video Jackson himself posted to Instagram.


No teams are mentioned by name. I can’t imagine he would get anything other than a non-guaranteed, make-good training camp contract. If that. But he is suggesting we will find out soon.
