Phil will look to hire by mid-June

Phil Jackson reportedly wants to have a new coach hired before he jets off to Turkey to attend his son’s wedding in the middle of June (FoxSports, June 4).

The Knicks president planned to take two weeks to celebrate his son’s wedding before accepting the front office position. Lakers president Jeanie Buss, Jackson’s fiancee, will also make the trip to Turkey.

According to FOX Sports 1/Yahoo NBA Insider Adrian Wojanarowski, Jackson is expected to meet with Derek Fisher this week, despite Jackson’s $25,000 fine for a tampering violation involving the Knicks new coaching candidate.
