The Clippers waived forward Stephen Jackson on Tuesday, the team announced. That opens the door for the team to sign another player, because they have a 14-man roster. The Clippers are looking at signing Maalik Wayns, whom they just released Sunday, to a 10-day contract, perhaps as soon as today, according to NBA officials who were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The Clippers also had interest in signing free-agent guard Sasha Vujacic to a 10-day contract, but have cooled on that idea for now, the officials said.

It was his "mind-set" that changed everything for Clippers center DeAndre Jordan this season. Jordan told himself that he would be a better defender and rebounder, and that his offense would be the least of his worries. That's also what Clippers Coach Doc Rivers and his staff demanded from Jordan, and he has not let them down. "They put a lot on me," Jordan said. "And really I'm just embracing it. " The entire NBA has taken notice of the 25-year-old's performance this season.

When it came down to determining who'd appear on his latest rap album, Spurs forward Stephen Jackson remained adamant that Lakers forward Metta World Peace wouldn't have a guest spot. "I can't vouch for his music," Jackson said of World Peace during a recent appearance on Power 105.1. But the reasons went beyond Jackson apparently disliking World Peace's single, "Champion," his various mix tapes and his lyrically deficient 10-minute music video that is no longer viewable.

On Tuesday night, Jackson arrived in Boston and signed a contract, and Wednesday night he was playing in a game with the Clippers against the Celtics. Jackson checked into the game with 2 minutes 17 seconds left in the first quarter, his first NBA game since April 6, when he played for the San Antonio Spurs, who released the veteran before the playoffs.

The NBA's most notorious villains have largely gone on to disappoint true crime fans. Stephen Jackson gave up his guns and earned the trust of a coach who made him a team captain. Zach Randolph became a brute force against poverty, repeatedly winning the league's Kia Community Assist Award for his work helping underprivileged families. Metta World Peace mingled calmly among the masses, raising money and awareness for mental health organizations. Second, third and fourth chances have mostly worked out for players once perceived as thugs, a few minor slip-ups and James Harden's head notwithstanding.

Gregg Popovich kicked Stephen Jackson off his team last spring. Eight months later, he stole Jackson's headband. The latter deed actually triggered a smile from Jackson on Monday night at Staples Center during a playful exchange between the coach and his former player. Moments after Popovich's San Antonio Spurs lost to Jackson's Clippers, 115-92, the coach walked behind Jackson and swiped his blue headband, removing it from Jackson's head with his right hand.

Blake Griffin could sense that something needed to be said to his Clippers teammates during a few crucial moments against the Washington Wizards on Saturday night and that it needed to come from him. Normally, Griffin is more reserved and less vocal, but he thought it was time his leadership abilities should be on display to help encourage his tired teammates to stay the course against the Wizards. "My type of leadership is not to talk all the time," Griffin said after the game in Washington.

BOSTON - Doc Rivers is returning to the site of his most glorious moments as an NBA coach. Rivers is bringing his new team, the Clippers, to face his old team, the Boston Celtics, a team he led to an NBA championship in 2008 and to the NBA Finals in 2010. He spent nine seasons with the Celtics before he bolted from Boston last June, rather than stick around for a rebuilding project, to join the Clippers to become the coach and senior vice president of basketball operations.

Stephen Jackson is still trying to control his emotions. Only this time, the emotion is joy. "It just feels like I am a kid playing basketball for the first time again," the Pacer guard said after returning from a 30-game suspension in Indiana's 100-86 loss to the Boston Celtics. "It felt good, but by the third quarter I kind of ran out of gas." Jackson scored 17 points in 38 minutes in his first game back since the Nov. 19 brawl against the Detroit Pistons at Auburn Hills, Mich.

Poor Lakers. Even if Dwight Howard walks and Metta World Peace gets amnestied, they're still too far over the salary cap to chase any big-name free agents. Silly NBA rules. Along those lines, a sad-looking quote stood out as players and staffers slogged through two days of end-of-season meetings last week - except Antawn Jamison, who skipped them as a final goodbye to the team and Mike D'Antoni. "The collective-bargaining agreement really limits how we can add to the team," Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak said.

Stephen Jackson, the volatile yet sometimes highly productive swingman, has been waived by the San Antonio Spurs, who apparently would rather go to the playoffs without him than listen to him complain about his minutes and role with the team. San Antonio published a news release on their website Friday that the 13-year veteran had been put on waivers after appearing in 55 games this season, averaging 6.2 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 19.5 minutes per game. “We're getting ready for the playoffs and putting our team together,” Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich said.
