Phil Jackson spoke to the media on Friday afternoon to update and shed some light on the head coach search >>
Jackson has interviewed some “unnamed” candidates, but has not yet spoken to Derek Fisher or Brian Shaw (Iannazzone, May 30).
The next coach will “understand the direction” Jackson is “trying to create” (Isola).
Jackson said he would like to have a history with the coach he hires, which would seem to eliminate Mark Jacskon (Isola).
A coach from the college ranks could be considered (Cacciola).
As far as coaching the team himself, Jackson said it’s something he’s interested in but that he can’t handle it physically (Iannazzone).
