I don’t know why people are blowing it up,” Jackson told USA Today. “I just saw Bleacher Report post it. They just take anything that’s posted on social media and just blow it up and try to think for you. I don’t take it too seriously.

Jackson said he wouldn’t comment on negotiations publicly.

I’m not putting my business life on social media. I won’t ever do that. I won’t put my personal life on social media. I’ll show stuff, but I won’t throw subliminal [boodskappe] uit. That’s not me,” Jackson gesê, adding he was hopeful a deal could get done before training camp.
