Jazz forward Richard Jefferson is in the final year of his contract, feels like he has "two or three more years where I can compete on a daily basis" and plans to go "championship hunting." In an interview on Sirius XM's Off the Dribble show Thursday, the 33-year-old Jefferson, who came to Utah in a trade from Golden State, said as his career winds down, he's not playing for money but a chance to win a title. "I want to play for a championship team," he said. "I want to win a championship. I've come that close. People think just the NBA, but I'll take it back a little further for you. I lost in the [NCAA] national championship game. Then I went to the Olympics and lost to a quality Argentina team and won a bronze medal. Then I lost in two NBA finals. I wan to win."
