Jordan Offering Jackson A Front Office Position?

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

No to both.  Bynum's injury history and odd attitude are a turn off, and I'm usually one to give players a chance.  Almost the same reasons for Howard, although he's been more durable this year and has mainly been quiet, I'd still be weary.

Id be ok with Howard, Bynum only if you could protect yourself in the contract wise. Talent wise they'd be the best bigman we've ever had.

Right, but then again, when Okafor was your best bigman it isn't going to be hard to beat that lol.
