The Nuggets are unlikely to swing a deal for Warriors forward Stephen Jackson, sources told the Denver Post.
There has been some buzz around the NBA that the Nuggets might be interested in Jackson.
The source told the Post that there have been no significant conversations between the two sides.
Denver has a trade exception worth $7.4 million, which is less than Jackson's $7.6 million contract.
denver, dallas both are not gonna take him, and cleveland is looking to sign daniels now. and i dont know if their willingy to take on his attitude. so i doubt hes going there.
yall for posting three of these. my computer was acting up.
hah.... well in denvers case id say, never say never.. im betting if its not jackson its somebody else...
WHY THE NUGGETS WON'T DEAL FOR JACKSON?
Stephen Jackson is a spectacular basketball player with a spectacularly explosive personality -- one I don't think will end up in powder blue. Crazier things have happened. But the Nuggets have worked especially hard at putting together a group of guys who have as much character as talent. Just look at the newcomers -- Arron Afflalo, Ty Lawson and Joey Graham and Malik Allen. Each guy is a great guy, as well as a guy who can help make this team better (the Nuggets feel). As for the Warriors' Jackson, even if Denver wanted him, he would be difficult to acquire.
Just saw this:

What do you call J. R. Smith? A model citizen?
