Some how, some way, Phil Jackson is probably going to make his NBA comeback soon. But is it going to be with the Cleveland Cavaliers? Ehhh…
We really can't see that happening. But, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst, the Cavs have reached out to Jackson about filling their head coaching vacancy. Last week, the team fired coach Byron Scott. And, shortly after doing it, they put out their feelers to see if Jackson would be interested in filling the opening that was left. No word on what answer Jackson gave them. But, recently, reports indicated that Jackson does want to get involved with the NBA again. So, at the very least, he's probably entertaining the Cavs offer and mulling over whether or not it's the right move for him right now.
Just in case he turns them down, Jackson isn't the only former NBA coach the Cavs are courting. In addition to the former Bulls/Lakers coach, the team has also reportedly met with former Cavs coach Mike Brown about returning to Cleveland. So stay tuned to see which direction they ultimately decide to go in.
