New year, same old story for Stephen Jackson. The Spurs veteran, who was traded from the Golden State Warriors to San Antonio last February, says he wants a contract extension with the franchise. The 34-year old Jackson demanded a similar extension from the Bucks last season, and they in turn responded by sending him packing to the Warriors, now, the player says he wants the same extension from the Spurs this season.
“I want it, but I can’t control it,” Jackson said, toweling sweat off his face after Tuesday’s practice. “Every day when I walk in here I’m hoping they’ll call me in and say, ‘Jack, here’s your extension.’
“I think I deserve it, but at the end of the day I’m still happy to be here and all I can worry about is what I can control, and that’s my play.”
