Phil Jackson Not Interested in Coaching the Orlando Magic

If Phillip wanted to come back and coach the obvious choice to me anyway would be the Clippers, but I hear that Donald Sterling doesn’t want a high profile and expensive coach.

It is one of the reasons the Clippers may never prosper under his reign of terror.

The Magic were interested in Jackson, but they weren’t interested in them.

Former Magic guard Sam Vincent, who played for the Chicago Bulls in the late 1980s while Jackson was an assistant coach, was the intermediary between Jackson and Magic CEO Alex Martins, who was presented with a proposal by Vincent on Wednesday, according to the paper.

“It drew some interest from Phil,” Vincent told the paper. “But in the end, Phil decided to go with another opportunity.”
