Woj: Popovich working out Jefferson
You may already have read this (news travels fast these days on the interwebs) but Adrian Wojnarowski reported last night that, although Richard Jefferson opted out, that does not necessarily mean he is leaving town.
Via Yahoo! Sports:
Sources said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has been personally working out Jefferson in San Antonio. The free-agent forward could re-sign with the team at a number that lowers the franchiseâ€™s luxury-tax hit while guaranteeing him more money on the back end of a multiyear contract.
I’ll admit, I was a little excited by the idea that the Richard Jefferson experiment may have come to an end. But a quick glance at the list of available wings makes me think that, if the Spurs have the opportunity to sign Jefferson to a multi-year deal for a significantly decreased annual amount, they’ll take it.
