Although the Golden State Warriors sent two second-round picks to the New Jersey Nets in order to delay giving up a first-rounder to New Jersey, that doesn’t mean Stephen Jackson is leaving the Bay Area anytime soon.

The Warriors were able to push back the delivery of a previously traded, lottery-protected first-round pick one year to 2012, NBA sources told Yahoo! Sports. The pick had been sent to the Nets in July 2008 in exchange for guard Marcus Williams, who signed with the Memphis Grizzlies as a free agent this offseason.

Nets could open season without Yi Sep 17, 2009
For agreeing to delay receiving the first-rounder from Golden State, the Nets will acquire two future second-round picks from the Warriors. The first-round pick originally was lottery protected in 2011. It now has lesser protection for 2012, though sources did not reveal in detail the exact level of protection.

The move allows the Warriors more time and flexibility to package their 2011 first-round pick in a deal, if they so choose. A source, however, said Golden State currently does not have any potential trades on the horizon – including anything involving disgruntled forward Jackson.

Jackson was fined $25,000 by the NBA last week for telling Dime Magazine in August that he wanted to be traded from the Warriors. The Warriors have stated that they expect Jackson to be a part of the team and arrive at training camp.

While a source said the Warriors are open to dealing Jackson, his contract – with four years and $35 million remaining – makes moving him difficult.

Jackson averaged a team-best 20.7 points, 6.5 assists and 5.1 rebounds for Golden State last season.

Any theories, people?

Nets wanted more picks that they could pick who knows. Maybe drafting more foreigners who might help in the long run or package in a deal for someone.

Warriors get time to get better since they were a 7th pick last year. They should be reasonably better with Monta Ellis healthy next season. Maybe they're gonna package it with jax for...only speculation at the moment.

Yi will be with the Nets on opening night.

Hmm you know what that actually isnt that bad. It could work, only thing is the Cavs come up on a top 30 player for practically nothing.

How many point guards does the warriors need? I say adjust it a bit. Make the cavs give up a bit more.
