Knicks might hire Phil Jackson: The latestPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the New York Daily News with the latest on the Knicks and Phil Jackson:
Offering Phil Jackson the head coaching job with the Knicks may end up costing Steve Mills his job.
Mills’ meeting with Jackson two weeks ago was a “disaster,” according to a person with knowledge of the negotiations. Jackson rejected the chance to replace Mike Woodson on the bench and instead is considering a move into the front office after speaking with Garden chairman James Dolan.
“Phil doesn’t want to work with Steve,” said a person close to Jackson. “Mills doesn’t know what to think now. Dolan is calling the shots on this one.”
Mills would remain in the organization in some capacity if Jackson joins the Knicks but would not be expected to have an active role in the day-to-day operations.
