Martin said he is interested in coaching on the college or NBA level. He also plans to help his 14-year-old son, Kenyon Jr., who is already 6-foot-3½ entering his freshman year at Oaks Christian School in Westlake Village, Calif., develop into a basketball star. “I have family time and business ahead,” Martin said. “And if something coaching comes up [basketball-wise], I will consider it. I’m also getting Kenyon, Jr., ready to be the No. 1 pick in a couple of years.”

This has been a rude awakening for Jackson, who is not accustomed to failure and is clearly not taking it well. According to a source, Jackson skipped several league events that he was scheduled to attend during the Knicks’ trip to London, choosing instead to keep a low profile. It was during that same trip that Jackson, according to a Milwaukee Bucks official, confronted Kenyon Martin to ask him about seemingly innocuous comments the veteran forward made a day earlier about the Knicks not being interested in signing him.

Instead, Phil Jackson showed scant interest, according to a source, and now the 37-year-old Martin is with the Bucks, signed last week to reunite with his buddy, coach Jason Kidd. Martin, who played the last two seasons with the Knicks, is ready to wreck havoc on coach Derek Fisher when the teams meet Thursday at O2 Arena. “You got to ask them that, boss,’’ Martin said when asked why the Knicks didn’t pursue him. “You know that. They made that decision. It is what it is. I moved on. I went and got my surgery and did most of [the rehab] on my own. I don’t hold no grudges. I thought it would’ve been a little different. It is what it is. I’m not bitter.’’
