PHIL JACKSON ASKED TO BE BROOKLYN NETS HEAD COACH, TALKS UNDERWAY

PHIL JACKSON ASKED TO BE BROOKLYN NETS HEAD COACH, TALKS UNDERWAY
After being unceremoniously fired as the Lakers’ head coach earlier this year, Phil Jackson may have a new job lined up for 2013. But over the past week, the buzz has been increasing that the Brooklyn Nets have their eyes firmly set on the man with the 11 championship rings to replace Avery Jackson. No formal discussions have taken place yet, and so far, Phil’s agent says he’s not interested in the job “at this time.” However, the New York Times reported that they expects Mikhail Prokhorov to be in contact with Jackson in the next few days. “We have heard pretty definitively that Phil Jackson is number 1 as he should be, as you’d expect he would be on the list. What we don’t really know is timing. Will they hire Phil Jackson sometime this season? Would that be the goal? Do they want PJ to finish out the season and then go through a coaching search? How quickly do they want to move? I think they will try to talk to Phil Jackson as soon as they can sometime in the next few days when Mikhail Prokhorov comes back from his new years eve partying. I think they’ll look to have that conversation.” It’s so early in the possible deal, though, that anything can happen at this point.
