Report: Phil Jackson Leaning Towards Becoming Knicks President

Phil Jackson reiterates he has no intentions of coaching.

Phil Jackson could be one step closer to returning to basketball. ESPN is reporting that Phil is “leaning towards” accepting the job of President of Basketball Operations with the Knicks:

While a decision has not been made, Phil Jackson is leaning toward taking a front-office job with the New York Knicks, a source close to the team tells ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith.

Jackson’s role would be president of basketball operations, in complete control of all basketball-related matters, according to the source.

The 11 time NBA champion could help steer the Knicks sinking ship in the right direction. It looks like we may never know how Jeannie and Phil would do running the Lakers.
