Stephen Jackson returned to San Antonio in March when the Spurs reacquired the guard in a trade with the Golden State Warriors.
And if it were up to Jackson, his second stint in San Antonio will be his last.
"If things work out here in San Antonio, I wouldn't mind finishing my career there," Jackson told Grantland.com.
But, Jackson, who has played for seven different NBA teams during his 12-year career, understands that the decision might not be up to him.
"You know, it's a business," Jackson said. "I'm one of those guys that doesn't mind going to play somewhere else. I've been on seven different teams."

Back in 2003, one of the lasting memories of the San Antonio Spurs' march to the NBA crown was seeing the fire and passion from Stephen Jackson.

When asked by Grantland.com, Stephen Jackson had this to say about his future in San Antonio:
“I don’t know. If things work out in San Antonio I wouldn’t mind finishing my career there. But you know it’s a business and I’m one of those guys that doesn’t mind going to play somewhere else. I’ve been on seven different teams.”

Stephen Jackson wouldn't mind finishing his career with the Spurs.
For the longest time, the San Antonio Spurs had a lock on the black and white color scheme in the NBA. The logo, uniforms, and overall merchandise shared the black and white look for years until other teams began to copy the black uniform look as the Spurs feature on their road uniforms.
Of course we will bury in our collective minds the horrific "fiesta colors" the...
It was a short-lived time with the San Antonio Spurs for Marcus Denmon after being selected at No. 59 at the 2012 NBA Draft. He spent time with the Spurs Summer League team and soon after, he signed with French team Elan Chalon to continue developing his basketball skills.
But unlike many other late Spurs' draft picks who are stashed away, never to be heard from again (like Robertas...
It's been a more active than normal summer for basketball. The NBA Finals bled right in to the NBA Draft, which bled right in to NBA Free Agency which bled right in the Olympics. Now the Olympics are over and training camp is over a month away. This is officially the NBA's summer doldrums. Because of the relative lack of team activity, writers, sites and blogs begin...
On Monday, when I wrote a small post about NBA players, front office staff and owners supporting Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, I never quite expected what was coming next.
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich pledging toward President Barack Obama's campaign for re-election was a choice several others made, including former Spur Doc Rivers.
While I will not state my...
Villas-Boas completed the much-needed capture of Emmanuel Adebayor this week and was expected to bolster his forward line further with a fresh bid for Internacional striker Damiao.
The 23-year-old, who Spurs have been tracking for over a year, is open to a move to the Premier League, but Villas-Boas now appears settled with his options up front.
Jermain Defoe has been linked with...
After falling in their opening games of the 2013 FIBA Eurobasket qualifying round last week, San Antonio Spurs draftee’s Adam Hanga and Davis Bertans got their first taste of victory on Tuesday, as Hanga led Hungary to a win over Austria, while Bertans helped in Latvia’s defeat of the Netherlands.
Hungary (1-1) defeated Austria 81-75 in a close game, and though Hanga wasn’t...
