Phil Jackson is back in New York! After winning 2 championships with the Knicks as a player in 1970 and 1973, Phil Jackson, is back home, this time as President of Basketball Operations.
According to our source, Jackson and the Knicks came to an agreement on Monday afternoon, with a press conference scheduled for Wednesday.
While details are still unconfirmed, we can say that Jackson will not be coaching the team and instead will be in charge of all basketball related decisions. Jackson’s first hurdle will be convincing Carmelo Anthony to re-sign with New York after his contract expires this summer.
