NBA - Scoop Du Jour

Yesterday it seemed like there was some momentum toward the Golden State Warriors sending the disgruntled Stephen Jackson(notes) to the Dallas Mavericks in an attempt at a salary dump or at least in exchange for the big contract of Jason Terry(notes).

But now it's looking like there is no way Jackson will end up in Dallas this season, according to the Dallas Morning News. The Mavs are apparently over the luxury tax already and Jackson would end up costing them $70 million over four years. Even owner Mark Cuban has his limits.

But it's not just the massive dollar amount that is keeping the team from going after Jackson. Dallas apparently doesn't want Jackson to horn in on any Shawn Marion(notes)/Josh Howard playing time.

So Jackson will just have to remain disgruntled just like so many great Warriors before him.
