Jack's way out of Golden State

Golden State Warriors swingman Stephen Jackson has been openly pining for a trade for weeks. He's tried to force the Warriors to dump him by publicly demanding a trade to a contender, skirmishing with coach Don Nelson (and being suspended), and having his agent, Mark Stevens, rip Nelson on ESPN.com.

But here's what Jackson hasn't done: Offer to take a massive pay cut, via a buyout, to get out of Golden State and onto a contender.
