The Lakers head coaching job is Phil Jackson’s if he wants to take it, but just in case he doesn’t the Lakers are talking to other possible candidates.

Until it becomes a certainty that Jackson is ready to return to coaching, the Lakers will continue the search process. It’s believed they have an interest in talking to former NBA coaches Mike D’Antoni, Nate McMillan and Mike Dunleavy.

Although health apparently isn’t a concern for Phil Jackson, the rigorous NBA schedule is.  It is no secret that Jackson is not a fan of the NBA’s heavy travel requirement, and I’m sure before he makes a definitive decision he’ll have to decide if he’s mentally prepared to handle it.
