AJC: Jackson won't return to Hawks
The Hawks will have only four players under contract going into the offseason. Stephen Jackson said Sunday that he will not pick up the option on the second year of his two-year, $2.1 million deal --- which shouldn't come as a surprise, considering he rejected a three-year, $10 million offer from the San Antonio Spurs last summer.
"I'm free after this year," Jackson said. "I'm totally free. I don't know if I'm going to be here next year or not. I know I'll have a job somewhere next year. No matter what, I'm going to be happy."
Should we try to get him? I think he would be a nice addition to the Lakers, he sure is having a very good year with the Hawks this year and is showing the league what he is capable of doing.
