NBA rumors: Los Angeles Clippers looking at signing Stephen Jackson?


Will they or won’t they sign Lamar Odom? That’s seemingly been the question all season for the Los Angeles Clippers, but one that may be answered in the relatively near future if Marc Stein’s sources are correct.

According to the ESPN scribe, the other Los Angeles team is looking at signing veteran swingman Stephen Jackson, which would all but end any pursuit of Odom:

Sources told ESPN.com that Jackson, who has been searching for a new team since his sudden release by the Spurs shortly before last season’s playoffs in April, has emerged as a prime candidate for the Clippers to sign as early as this week after a series of injuries have decimated L.A.’s depth.

Odom won’t be ready to play until January at the earliest – potentially February – and who knows what he’d even bring to the table.

Jackson meanwhile hasn’t played since last season, though, was still getting it done on both sides of the floor despite a relatively inefficient shooting percentage.

It would shockingly be Jackson’s first stop in Los Angeles, despite playing for seven NBA teams during his 13-year NBA career.
