Warriors Leaning Toward Keeping Jackson

9:57pm: Marcus Thompson II of the Bay Area News Group says four or five teams have called the Warriors about Jackson, but no offers have been compelling enough to force a move. If the team doesn't make a trade, they're likely to pick up a player to fill out the roster after the deadline. 

1:37pm: Shortly after the Warriors completed the five-player deal that brought Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson to Golden State, reports indicated the team would like to trade Jackson elsewhere before the deadline. However, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Warriors are now "leaning toward keeping" S-Jax.

As Sam Amick of SI.com wrote today, flipping Jackson would be difficult not only because of his $10MM+ cap figure for next season, but also because he still hasn't passed a physical with the Warriors. The team would have a very small window to deal him before tomorrow's deadline.

According to Simmons, the Warriors could consider buying out Jackson, but such a move is unlikely, since Mark Jackson would like a chance to coach him and Golden State is lacking active players.

    There was no obvious fit for Jackson on another team taking into consideration need and salary. I thought they might be able to get something done with the T-wolves – not sure if Jackson fits personality wise there though.

    Brad Miller + another might have worked, or just Miller with the Warriors sending some $$ to offset Jackson’s salary.

    As a Warrior fan, I liked the trade a lot better if they had a flip trade for Jackson already lined up.

    It would be a junk for junk deal. Why anyone would want S-Jax I don’t understand.
