NY Knicks need miracle to sign LeBron James and his name is Phil Jackson

Ronald MonestimeCorrespondent IMay 26, 2010

Even in the midst of potentially leading the Los Angeles Lakers to a second consecutive NBA Championship and a third straight appearance in the NBA Finals, Phil Jackson, who is in the final year of his contract with the Lakers, is already being courted for his superlative coaching services.

According to ESPN.com, the Chicago Bulls have reached out to Phil Jackson through back channels to gauge his interest in returning to the city and the franchise where he won six of his record ten NBA titles from 1990-1998.

In addition, the New Jersey Nets, who Jackson served as a player-assistant coach from 1978-1980, have made similar back-channel inquiries regarding his openness to the possibility of leaving Los Angeles when their playoff run is over.
