Warriors Want Fair Value For Jackson
Oct 12, 2009 7:38 AM EST
The Warriors plan to meet with disgruntled forward Stephen Jackson prior to their first preseason game at home.
Jackson is expected to meet with Golden State general manager Larry Riley and coach Don Nelson before the team's practice on Tuesday. He missed the team's last two preseason games because of a team-imposed suspension.
He had a blowup on the sideline with Nelson on Friday night in Los Angeles, which led to the suspension.
The Warriors, according to sources, remain open to trading Jackson if they can find a reasonable deal.
Bynum Could Take Minutes From Odom
Oct 12, 2009 5:23 PM EST
If Andrew Bynum is both healthy and productive this season, he could conceivably take minutes away from Lamar Odom.
Heading into the season, Odom says that he's content with his role as Lakers' sixth man, but no one can predict how he might react if his minutes are reduced.
Even though Odom was the first man off the bench for Los Angeles at times last season, he was on the court late in the fourth quarter of close games.
If Bynum proves himself worthy of remaining on the court in crunch time, Kevin Ding of the Orange County Register writes that Phil Jackson could have an issue on his hands.
