RJ Wanted Return To Nets

New, comments

Al Iannazzone spoke to Richard Jefferson while the former Net was plying his still effective trade vs. the Knicks this week and learned RJ considered a return to New Jersey this summer but the Nets weren't interested.

"Having roots there, just respecting the organization and wanting to help bring them back to a level in which they had been accustomed to for most of the [last] decade, I explored that," Jefferson said. "That was something they really weren’t interested in."

Jefferson, who had his agent speak with the Nets front office, was re-signed by the Spurs to a nearly $40 million deal while the Nets went with Travis Outlaw, who's four years younger and got $35 million.
