Mark Jackson Not Worried About New Contract
Mark Jackson is the Zen Don Nelson — similar Warriors success, much less frantic financial agitation.
So: Jackson is not going to scheme for a bigger, longer contract this summer after leading the Warriors to a surprise playoff run, though that’s exactly what Nelson did after the franchise’s previous postseason berth.
If a new deal for Jackson comes before the season starts, then fine.
If it doesn’t (and Jackson said there have been no serious talks as of yet this offseason) . . . well, Jackson might not be 100 percent thrilled with that, but he almost certainly won’t stage a Nelson-style hold out.
“I’m a guy with great faith. I know it’ll work out,” Jackson said. ”So I don’t get caught up in it. This isn’t standard ‘coach line.’ It’s the truth. It’ll work out. I do know that.”
