So @gerywoelfel reports Cap'n Jack, who is 33 and makes $9 million, and is holding out for a contract extension? Don't hold your breath dude— John Hollinger (@johnhollinger) December 16, 2011
Here's another tidbit to add via ESPN: "According to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times, Stephen Jackson hasn't been practicing with the Bucks for the last several days. And though the team is saying it's due back spasms, a different story is also taking shape. "There are growing whispers that the 33-year-old Jackson isn't content with his current contract," wrote Woefel. "League sources said Jackson sought a contract extension last season from the Charlotte Bobcats and that was one of the primary reasons they shipped him to Milwaukee ... There is growing speculation, though, that Jackson is upset the Bucks haven't approached him about reconstructing his contract and that he was now going to approach them." At 33 years of age and still having two season left on his deal, it wouldn't appear to be the strongest move for the Bucks to tack on any extra years or cash for Jackson at this juncture. And if Jackson were to demand a trade, there's no guarantee any other team would extend him, either." -- Ryan Corazza I was always torn about booing him when he visits Oracle, but now not so much.. This guy can act like a complete punk sometimes.
