Golden State Warriors forward Stephen Jackson(notes) told Dime Magazine on Friday that he wants to be traded. His preferred destination: "Either Cleveland, anywhere in Texas or out here with Al [Harrington] in New York."
Jackson, who received a three-year contract extension from the Warriors last season, said the team knows of his wish to leave. He evidently doesn't think Golden State is close enough to becoming a contender.
"I really can’t get too much into it right now, but I’m just looking to go somewhere where I can go and win a championship," Jackson said.
