In an article from SI.com, according to one Eastern conference executive, the Spurs are aggressively shopping Richard Jefferson but due to his $15.1 million contract and perhaps his less than stellar performance this year, seems no team is interested.
“They’re trying, but there may not be a market for his contract,” one Eastern Conference executive told SI.com.
Jefferson was touted as the missing piece for the Spurs to bring them back to the NBA Finals when he was acquired via trade from the Milwaukee Bucks this past summer. However, it has not worked out and has drawn the ire from fans and has even ran out the patience of the Spurs themselves. Not to mention he is having his lowest production since he was a rookie averaging 12.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists.
