No final decision had been made on Jackson’s future late Tuesday night, but Dolan is harboring uncertainties about how much longer to commit to Jackson as the organization’s top basketball decision-maker, league sources told The Vertical.
Dolan has become increasingly concerned about Jackson’s fitness for the job and the long-term prospects of success for the franchise, especially in the aftermath of Jackson entertaining trades for Kristaps Porzingis, the franchise’s 21-year-old burgeoning star, league sources told The Vertical.

A City Council proposal to create a neighborhood fund out of city income taxes collected from Detroit Pistons and visiting NBA players hit a speed bump Tuesday. The proposal — put forward by Councilwoman Mary Sheffield — would take city income taxes collected from players and workers at Detroit Pistons home games and allocate them toward city projects.
Projects listed in the proposal include everything from neighborhood amenities to blight removal. City staff at the meeting estimated the fund would collect $1.3 million annually to help renew neighborhoods.
