Phil Jackson Could Reportedly Become the Sonics' Team President If the Team Moves to Seattle

Phil Jackson Could Reportedly Become the Sonics' Team President If the Team Moves to SeattleJim O'Connor/USA TODAY Sports

Last week, we told you that Phil Jackson took on the role of a temporary advisor to the Toronto Raptors as they search for their next head coach. So, it's only a matter of time before Jackson is available once again. But, it looks like Phil may have found his next job in the NBA. Maybe.

Jackson has reportedly "hit it off" with Chris Hansen, the man leading the charge to bring the Kings franchise to Seattle. And, according to ESPN's Marc Stein, if the Sonics do come to fruition, then Hansen will appoint Phil as team president. 

Even though Hansen and his group bidding for the Kings have upped their to $625 million, there is no certainty that there will be a Sonics franchise at the start of the 2013-14 season. Which means that if the Kings stay in Sacramento, it's back to the drawing board for Jackson.
