Mark Jackson absolved himself from Golden State's decision to waive Jeremy Lin as they put together an offer for DeAndre Jordan.

Jackson was the member of the Warriors who pulled Lin aside to inform him of the team's decision.

"That's the extent of our relationship," Jackson said before Sunday's game against Houston, which waived Lin on Christmas Eve. "I got a text message from Spike Lee (on Saturday) morning, thanking me, like I had something to do with it. I never saw him do a layup, so people can stop asking me. He never practiced for us, so leave me out of it."
