As of today, Phil Jackson is officially back in the NBA! So which team will he be guiding to the NBA Finals next year? The Lakers? No? Ummmâ€¦the Raptors? No? Errrâ€¦the Bobcats? No? Okay, we give up. Who?!
Theeeeeeeâ€¦Pistons. Surprised? Us, too. But, actually, Jax isn't coming back as a head coach. He's also not going to be Detroit's new team president. Instead, he's simply serving as a temporary advisor to the team as they seek to fill their head coaching vacancy. It seems he's good friends with Pistons owner Tom Gores, so he's agreed to do him a solid and help him find a new coach.
No word on how long it's going to take him to find a new coach for the Pistons. But with Jackson's connections, we wouldn't be surprised if it only took a week or two to get the job done. Until then, enjoy having him back in the league.
