UPDATE 2 (1:26pm): My esteemed collegue JAE gets down and dirty with the NBA's CBA in Jax to Charlotte: Warriors financial implications
UPDATE (8:47am): Track this story up to the minute in this SB Nation.com sports stream: Stephen Jackson Finally Gets His Wish: Traded to the Charlotte Bobcats
Over at the mothership SB Nation.com they've got a story stream on today's Stephen Jackson trade that updates by the minute. Via Yahoo Sports' Marc Spears tweet (remember Spears Don't Lie!), the Warriors and Bobcats have just agreed on this trade: Stephen Jackson and Acie Law to Charlotte for Vladamir Radmanovic and Raja Bell.
Think the Young Fella will dig Charlotte?
Is Monta the next to go?
My first thought: A Raja and Curry on the Warriors? This is like Warriors nirvana for your Indo brother!
My second thought: Good luck playing for a winner "Captain"!
My third thought: I wonder what our friends over in BETcats land think about move. Check out Rufus on Fire.
My fourth thought: The Warriors actually found a worse team to send Jack to- and that's incredibly hard to do.
My fifth thought: Former Warriors player and GM Rod Higgins really likes doing business with his old team.
