Broussard: Phil Jackson expected to take NYK job

Phil Jackson is expected to join the New York Knicks front office (Broussard, March 10).

“The Knicks have a sense of what’s going to happen,” ESPN’s Chris Broussard’s source said, speaking on the condition of anonymity. “And as of right now, it looks like Phil’s taking the job. There’s always the possibility of something falling apart at the last minute, but the Knicks’ sense is that he’s joining them.”

Jackson’s answer is expected to become official within the next day or so, the report said.

It has not been reported what job he has been offered.

If it was up to ESPN and their reporters the Knicks would just be eliminated from the NBA... Its sad

If they could get Love though, Melo would have to go.

If they could just get rid of everyone except for Melo, Chandler, Hardaway and Tyler that would be a gpod start.

Exited about this.  Even if his job is to just flash those rings and say "you know, being a champion means sacrificing for the good of the team, so how about we shave a few million off this contract we're offering you, Marc Gasol" then it will be worth it.

I just hope this thing comes to fruition and hes not waiting few days to entice the Lakers to come thru with a job offering. I know Mitch Kupchak would be "thrilled" to have PJ come be his boss. I hate the Knicks being used as a bargaining chip. If you're going to take the job, then take the damn job. What's with this several days to contemplate business?

If Phil agreed to run the basketball operations for any of the other teams in the league, it would be praised as a positive move and all you would hear about is credibility, basketball knowledge etc etc. Because it's the Knicks, you get a completely different spin.

@oldknick. He can't be worse than what we've been dealing with. If he's pres of basketball, he can hire a GM and a coach... Then him n the GM unite to make decisions...
