Jordan Offering Jackson A Front Office Position?

Recommended Posts



Phil Jackson would be a HUGE pickup. I definitely didn't/couldn't see him coaching Charlotte or Cleveland, but I could definitely see him being in charge of basketball operations. If Phil really wants to move on from coaching and make his mark as an executive, then Charlotte would be the perfect place for him to do it.

Not going to happen.

The bobcats are too awful for PJ. He would have to be an executive on a team like the Knicks/Heat/Lakers/Clippers/OKC

He isn't going anywhere that would require a few years of work.

I think the deal is, finding somewhere where he can connivence good talent to come and play. The NBA has a salary cap and you can move guys around to find the cash. Thing is, the white sandy beaches of Miami and the nonstop entertainment in New York City, offer things that Charlotte can't. That is the difference.

Oklahoma City has no clue how luckily they are to have a guy like Durant who loves living there. Sort of reminds me of Malone and Stockton in Utah. Sometimes cities like that can land a guy or two who loves it, but it's a rare find. Most star athletes are gladly going to the Big Apple, Hollywood or South Beach in a heartbeat.

Marc Stein on ESPN this morning said "PJ", if he wants what he says he wants, is most likely going to take a job like Toronto or Charlotte because the successful teams already have front offices with track records that won't be uprooted for "PJ."  

 

I think Cha has a better chance than most "rebuilding" teams because of Jordan's relationship with Phil Jackson.  Cleveland's owner may be too imposing for Phil and Canada may be too cold for Phil (reportedly didn't want to take a job where its cold).

Don't see it happening, even if Jackson was willing, and lets be honest he spends most of his time in Idaho or Montana not in LA these days.  Regardless I don't see Jordan giving up control of operations.  Jackson has let it be known he is interested in a Riley type job that he goes in late and leaves early and just makes the final decisions.  But that is what Jordan wants and does now also, don't see an alpha dog like Jordan turning over the decision on who to draft,sign,release to someone else even Jackson..

"Jackson would prefer an advisory role similar to Jerry West's current position with the Golden State Warriors rather than a more active role similar to Pat Riley with the Miami Heat."

 

Though this article said Charlotte may not be in play, it does say that Jackson wants an advisory role NOT a Riley role, like Jerry West at Golden St.

Just a thought(no chance this happens but it's an interesting thought) if we could bring Pj into the front office then use him to bring in a big name coach and then offer Dwight Howard a max contract(outside the lakers we can give him the most money I believe) would you want Dwight as the centerpiece of the team? And to a lesser extent same question could apply to Bynum.

Glad he isnt looking for full control, because I'm actually happy with the front office right now.  If Phil wants to come in and take an advisory role, great, otherwise I'm fine leaving Cho in charge
