Stephen Jackson thinks he can be an NBA-level player for two more years.

Jackson has been talking about a comeback all summer and continue that talk in saying he has two years left. "I've been been playing basketball at a high level and my body feels great," Jackson said. "I got calls from different coaches who have seen me work out and they know I can still play. I've got two years left, so why not give it back to the game?" While the 38-year-old may hook on somewhere, he won't be more than a bench player and can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.

Stephen Jackson said he's not looking to return to the NBA to chase a ring.

While Jackson had been rumored to be interested in making a comeback with the Warriors, he said he's not just chasing a ring. "I love the Knicks, I love Chicago, even love New Orleans," Jackson said. "I think those are great places where I can be a great teammate and also help the team become a better team. I'm not one of those guys that's chasing the ring." The 38-year-old could help a team as a veteran off the bench, but he won't have any fantasy value if he hooks on somewhere.

Stephen Jackson said Jimmy Butler and Rajon Rondo are trying to recruit him to the Bulls.

Jackson has been eyeing an NBA comeback and said he's been in contact with the two Bulls players. "Well, actually not a lot of people know that Jimmy has been calling me," Jackson said. "We’ve been talking for like three months now. Even [Rajon] Rondo has been calling me, they really want me on the Bulls team." While the 38-year-old could hook on as a bench player with the Bulls (or another NBA team), he still wouldn't have any fantasy value if that happens.

Stephen Jackson proclaimed in a video on Instagram that he will be back in the NBA next season.

Jackson wouldn't get into the specifics, but he said time and again that he will be back in the NBA, and that we'll be hearing about the deal "soon." Jackson added that he's spent the past two days getting checked out by his doctor, and he's 100 percent healthy mentally and physically. If Jackson does indeed wind up back in the league, he'll likely be serving in a mentorship role, playing extremely limited minutes. There's no fantasy value here.

The Warriors denied a report that veteran FA Stephen Jackson has been invited to their training camp.

ESPN's Rachel Nichols initially reported that Jackson would attend, but later posted the correction that "[Jackson] has been talking to the Warriors about camp." Even if he does get an invite, the 38-year-old SF is very unlikely to make an NBA team's roster.

Stephen Jackson will attend the Warriors' training camp in an attempt to make an NBA comeback.

The salary cap got pretty ridiculous this offseason, so even at the veteran's minimum, Captain Jack could make a pretty penny. If he were able to make an NBA team, he would just be there in a mentorship role, and would possess zero fantasy value. He'd be good for some fun quotes, though.
Jul 10 - 6:16 PM

According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Stephen Jackson would like to make an NBA comeback next season.

Jackson is now 38 years old, so there likely won't be much interest around the league. The Warriors were looking to add Jackson in a coaching role, but he must be convinced that he can still play at a high level. He will probably have a limited role if he does play again, but we hope he lands a contract because Captain Jack is a quote machine.

Stephen Jackson officially retired from professional basketball.

He was one of the best for quotes. Whether it was dissing coach Scott Skiles, being fined $25K for "issuing a hostile statement directed to Serge Ibaka in a Twitter message," or saying things like "I make love to pressure." S-Jax played 14 seasons in the NBA and averaged 15.1 points per game.

Veteran SF Stephen Jackson hasn't yet retired from the NBA, but he admitted that he's "not sitting around with [his] fingers crossed."

"If it happens, it happens," Jackson said. "If I get a call I will explore it, but I'm enjoying my life, man. I'm doing music now so it's all good." He appeared in only nine games after being signed by the Clippers last season and was waived due to the team's need for guards, but Doc Rivers offered nothing but praise for the 36-year-old journeyman. It would be a surprise to see him earn a guaranteed NBA contract next season.

Clippers waive F Stephen Jackson.

"Stephen was everything I needed him to be," said Doc Rivers. "Great attitude, great in the locker room ... It was more, once Chris [Paul] went down, we needed guards." Sure enough, L.A. is expected to sign backup PG Maalik Wayns on a 10-day contract. Jackson won't be a fantasy asset no matter where he lands.

Dan Woike, Arash Markazi and other sources are reporting that Stephen Jackson is on the verge of being waived by the Clippers.

Jackson was brought in with Matt Barnes, J.J. Redick and Reggie Bullock all out with injuries, but Barnes is back, and Redick and Bullock appear to be on the verge of a return. Jackson may catch on with another team at some point, but his fantasy career is over for all intents and purposes.

Stephen Jackson felt good but winded after playing 12 minutes in his first game action of the season Tuesday night.

"I felt pretty good. I was winded," Jackson said after Tuesday's game. "My legs were tired as soon as I got in the game, but it felt good to get back out there. Getting a win in the first one is definitely sweet." The ailing Clippers badly need the depth that the 13-year-veteran is able to supply, but fantasy owners can do a lot better than a player who likely won't ever see more than 15 minutes per game.

Stephen Jackson will join the Clippers in Boston on Tuesday to sign his contract and take a physical.

"We need him in a pinch and we need him like now," Rivers said. "And that's a guy that you can bring in and hopefully he can give you something right away with Reggie [Bullock] being out for at least this trip and maybe longer." Jackson may get some decent run in the short-term for the short-handed Clippers, but the 13-year-veteran can be considered a fantasy non-factor in all but the deepest of leagues.

The Clippers have reached an agreement with Stephen Jackson, according to ESPN.com's Chris Broussard.

It's a non-guaranteed deal and he'll just add depth for the Clippers. The loss of J.J. Redick (wrist) has made them a little thin at the wing, but it still might be a little while before Jackson gets worked into the rotation. He played just 19.5 minutes per game with the Spurs last year, so that serves as a fair cap for his potential value this season. He can be left on the wire in just about every league.
