The San Antonio Spurs announced Friday afternoon they've placed former Bucks forward Stephen Jackson on waivers.
Jackson, 35, played in 55 games for the Spurs this season, averaging 6.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 19.5 minutes per game.
The news of Jackson's release was first reported by Yahoo! Sports, which also reported the reason for Jackson being waived was continued disagreements with coach Gregg Popovich and Jackson about his role on the team. According to Yahoo! Sports, Jackson and the Spurs talked about parting ways around the All-Star break, but decided to stick it out until "disagreements resurfaced this week."
If that sounds familiar, Jackson pulled a similar act while in Milwaukee. Acquired in a three-team deal on draft night in 2011 with Shaun Livingston, Beno Udrih and the draft rights to Tobias Harris in exchange for Corey Maggette, John Salmons and the draft rights to Jimmer Fredette, Jackson never wanted to be with the Bucks.
