Stephen Jackson has requested a trade. He said he wants to go to a contender.Here's what he said he hopes he will be going to. Cleveland , NY Knicks , Texas team.

I don't know how Knicks are considered a elite.

The team that could use him the most is the Houston Rockets. Who badly needs a offensive firepunch.

Jackson a former spur. And if he becomes a Spur.He most likely will be the 6th man or so.

Cleveland. Doesn't need him.But they could throw in Delonte West with a couple other guys.

Knicks. Jackson said that he wants to reunite with ex teamate Al Harrington.

So that leaves the Dallas Mavericks standing.

It's been reported that the Mavs are in talks with Don Nelson.

Golden State wants an expiring contract.

Perfect Erick Dampier. Package him with the Greg Buckner or Shawne Williams.

There's already been 2 proposed trades.

Dallas trades : Erick Dampier , Shawne Williams

Golden State Trades : Stephen Jackson , Speedy Claxton or.....

Dallas trades : Erick Dampier and Greg Buckner

for the same players.

Most Likely Jackson will be coming off the bench.
