Stephen Jackson says Butler, Rondo recruiting him to Bulls; also would fit well with Knicks
Stephen Jackson wants back in the NBA. This season.
The question is where?
As you might imagine, the loquacious Jackson has some ideas on the matter, something he talked about in an interview with Hoopshype.com.
For example, there’s the Knicks.
Also, he says Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo want him on the Bulls.
The question is “bring” or “brought?” Jackson has a long and impressive NBA career that includes a title with the Spurs. However, the last time we saw him on an NBA court was two seasons ago when he played just nine games for the Clippers.
The other question: Do the Knicks and Bulls want to get older? With those rosters?
The Bulls do have a roster spot available if they are willing to cut someone like Spencer Dinwiddie, but they are over the cap and can only offer the minimum. The Knicks are in the same boat, they could make room for Jackson by cutting people like J.P. Tokoto, but all they can offer is a minimum deal.
Maybe one of these teams will give Jackson a make-good training camp contract, but it’s hard to imagine anything more after a couple of seasons away from the league.
