Stephen Jackson would accept buyout

Rusty Simmons, Chronicle Staff Writer - Stephen Jackson would be interested in listening to a conversation about a buyout or any other means of getting out of Golden State.

"If they want to send me home and pay me, I'm fine with that. No question," Jackson said. "If they decide to send me home and still pay me, I'll still be playing basketball somewhere. That's not going to stop. This is not the only team in the NBA."

Asked if he would take a buyout, Jackson said, "It would have to be right. That's something that they would talk about with my agent and he'd get back to me. I doubt they'd do that."

Could Iverson be traded again?

The New York Post reports that an unnamed team executive thinks the Detroit Pistons may try to trade Allen Iverson before All-Star Weekend.

The story noted that via email, the source said Pistons president Joe Dumars could seek a deal for Iverson before the trade deadline, and possibly before the All-Star Game. "But only if he can get back a similar expiring contract," the source was quoted as writing.

Additionally, there were rumors coming from an unidentified agent that the budget-minded Dumars had attempted to deal Tayshaun Prince to the Golden State Warriors for Stephen Jackson . Dumars angrily shot down that rumor.

"That's absolutely false!" the story quoted Dumars as saying. "I'm not trading Prince, period."
