Richard Jefferson talks retirement decision with Lauren Brill

Westlake, Ohio - After the Cavs won an NBA title, 15-year veteran Richard Jefferson told the world he was done and ready to retire.

But just days later, as the city hosted a celebration for the team downtown, he told fans that he would return next season.  The free agent sat down with NewsChannel5's Lauren Brill.

When asked about retirement, his answer was not decisive. 

"No one can blame you for that, everyone applause you on that," Jefferson said. "As much as people want one more year no one can blame me if I walk away. I think honestly I don’t think I'd play just one more. I think it would be two or three or calling it a day."

Watch above for the complete interview on his retirement decision.
