Cavaliers re-sign veteran forward Richard Jefferson

CLEVELAND (AP) Richard Jefferson's planned retirement didn't last long.

The valuable veteran forward, who played a critical role in Cleveland winning an NBA championship this season, re-signed with the Cavaliers on Thursday.

Shortly after the Cavs rallied from a 3-1 deficit to stun the Golden State Warriors in the finals, Jefferson said he would be ending his long playing career on top. However, at the urging of thousands of Cleveland fans who chanted "One more year" during the team's victory rally, Jefferson had a change of heart.
