Phil Jackson would prefer a front office Pat Riley style position, but that isn’t going to stop teams from speaking to him about taking over as their head coach.
The Nets need a coach who is an expert of getting talented players on the same page, that is something Jackson excels at.
The Brooklyn Nets have contacted Phil Jackson about replacing the outgoing P.J. Carlesimo, according to a source.
After Jackson, the source says the list of current Nets candidates consists of Larry Brown and Brian Shaw.
If the Nets were to offer Jackson a front office job, Shaw would be the leading candidate.
