Sources: Phil Jackson open to return
Updated: November 9, 2012, 7:30 PM ET
By Dave McMenamin | ESPNLosAngeles.com


Phil Jackson is open to returning to the NBA sidelines, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the Hall of Fame coach's thinking.

With the Los Angeles Lakers relieving Mike Brown of his coaching duties Friday morning due to a 1-4 start, Jackson could return to the Lakers for his third stint as coach of the league's glamour franchise if it wants him back.

More on the Brown firing

After two failed coaching hires, the pressure's on Lakers' VP Jim Buss to make the right choice, writes J.A. Adande. Story

A team built to contend is in turmoil and a roster full of superstars needs a coach. Who are the Lakers going to call? It better be Phil Jackson, writes Arash Markazi. Story

What's next for the Lakers? Good move or bad? Five ESPN.com NBA writers weigh in.


Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak told reporters Friday afternoon that the team's brain trust -- Kupchak along with Lakers owner Dr. Jerry Buss and executive vice president of player personnel Jim Buss -- already has put together a list of potential replacements for interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff. Among the "four or five" names on that short list is Jackson, according to a league source.

Jackson had not been contacted by the team as of Friday afternoon, however.

The all-time winningest head coach in NBA championship history with 11 titles to his name, Jackson has not coached since the 2010-11 season when he walked away from the game after the Lakers were swept out of the second round of the playoffs.

He took last season off to avoid the frustration associated with a lockout-shortened season and to improve his health. Jackson, 67, is "getting better and better," according to a source familiar with the rehabilitation process for Jackson, who underwent knee replacement surgery in March.

"He's been in tune with the Lakers' season and has kept an eye on the league," a source close to Jackson told ESPNLosAngeles.com.

Jackson's presence never has fully left the Lakers. He still frequently stops by the team's practice facility to visit his longtime girlfriend, Jeanie Buss. Kobe Bryant often quotes Jackson maxims during news conferences. Even Jackson's two elevated chairs -- one he used at home practices and one the team took on the road for away games -- are still propped up against a wall by the entrance to the training room at the practice facility.

Should Jackson return to the Lakers, league sources feel he would be interested in bringing along an assistant coach or associate head coach that he could groom to be his successor. Jackson feels like he owes much of his success to his longtime consultant Tex Winter, the architect of the Triangle offense, and he would like to pay it forward to another young coach. When Jackson spoke to Portland and Orlando about their head coaching vacancies this past offseason, a mentor arrangement was discussed in both situations, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.

The Lakers' coaching search is expected to be a swift one.

"It's not going to be a long process; that's for damn sure," a source told ESPNLosAngeles.com. "But they're going to do their due diligence."

Added Kupchak: "The sooner the better. We don't have a timetable, quite frankly, because this happened so quickly."

Although Jackson values the process of going through a full training camp when taking over a team, a source close to the coach said that could be mitigated with this current Lakers' group because Jackson would be joining it with pre-existing familiarity with the roster, namely Bryant, Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace, whom he coached to a championship in 2010.

Jackson is in Los Angeles and was seen sporting a mustache, the same look he went with when the Lakers first hired him in 1999, at a recent dinner.

Dwight Howard has told the Los Angeles Lakers he wants them to bring back Phil Jackson as coach,’ a source close to the team tells SheridanHoops.com.

(Jerry) Buss’ son, Jim, is expected to be the person who makes the ultimate decision on who the next coach will be, and the source who spoke to SheridanHoops made it clear that Buss is aware of Howard’s wishes. It remains unclear if Jackson would be interested, but he retains a close relationship with Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol — two of the players he coached in Los Angeles before leaving the team after the 2010-11 season.

I want to say I can't believe that, but I can. One of these years the Lakers aren't going to be able to drag Jackson out of retirement for the 14th time to save them.

My feeling when I first heard this news is Phil is coming back. No way they make the move this early if its not him. I'm not sure if he can make it work. The starters don't seem to fit together and they have no bench. If anyone can make anything work is definitely the Zen Master though. Couldn't make a better hire.

See, I don't agree they have no bench.

Brown couldn't use the bench to save his life. He buried the only shooter he had for no real good reason in Meeks. Jamison needed more minutes. Hill isn't a bad big backup. The backup PG is a mess, but they have depth in some areas.

Brown's misuse was equally as criminal as his Princeton offense idea.

It's either going to be Phil or D'Antoni, but I have my doubts about MD. I think Phil's first year in LA, he had a lot more mismatched pieces with Glen Rice in the triangle than he would with this unit. Phil loves Howard as is evident every time he talks about him. Gasol can definitely play in it. The real question is Nash, but Phil's a smart enough guy to adjust things to make it work.

It'll be an interesting 48 hours. everything I've read says a coach will be hired far sooner than anyone realizes.

You know more about the Lakers than I do so I trust your opinion. I have no doubts Jackson will get the max out of the team if the sources are correct.

If whoever takes this team deep in the playoffs Brown might be lucky to get a WNBA job.

No matter who they hire they are most likely better than Scott Brooks

I honestly think Phil agreed to take the job today. They'll probably announce it tomorrow.

If Phil wants it I can't imagine there would be a decision to be made.

Phil Jackson is about to get paid like Michael Jordan.

Man, wouldn't it be nice if the Chiefs cared about winning that much?

Lakers insist they chose D'Antoni over Phil. Say triangle offense similar to Princeton and would not have been good fit for roster.

Adam Schefter @AdamSchefter
Lakers have hired Mike D'Antoni, signing the former coach of the Suns and Knicks to a four-year contract.

Clyde Drexler, Karl Malone, etc... it goes back to the Dream Team arguments this summer. Maybe the current team would win, but not because they played 1950s basketball in the 90s.

Depends on where you look.

The current NBA guard talent is unreal. Especially at the point guard position, and largely because the NBA outlawed hand checking so Micheal Jordan could be even more dominant which has led to point guards becoming scorers.

Big men? Please. The big man talent in the NBA in 1994 would kill the current NBA. NBA had loads of great defensive big men in the 90's. Rik Smits would kick ass in today's NBA and he was just a solid/average big man. A guy like Hakeem would be unstoppable.

Phil Jackson, after taking his 14th bong hit, had no comment.
