Richard Jefferson to stay with Warriors



The Golden State Warriors are a fast-rising team. With a breakout season from Stephen Curry, the quick development of Klay Thompson under the tutelage of  coach Mark Jackson, the Warriors made a memorable playoff run. Unfortunately, its further development may be hampered by bad contracts that they cannot dispose. That’s the reality of the NBA, that good players get a long-term, high price deal, and cost a high price tag long after they’re useful.




Not to anyone’s surprise, Golden State Warriors forward Richard Jefferson will exercise his player option for the 2013-14 season and become an unrestricted free agent after the season concludes, his agent Todd Eley of Stratosphere Sports conveyed to



“Richard has exercised his option to include the 2013-14 season in his current contract,” Eley said.



Jefferson, 32, will earn $11 million next season by opting into the final year of a four-year, $38 million contract he signed in 2010. If he had declined the option, that would have made him an unrestricted free agent this summer.



The 12-year vet appeared in 56 game during his 2012-13 campaign and averaged 3.1 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 10.1 minutes per game.
