Phil Jackson Rumors

Jackson is currently looking to find his next coach. Former Cavaliers coach David Blatt recently spoke with the Knicks, but many expect Kurt Rambis to simply have the interim tag removed, given his past with Jackson and affinity for the triangle offense. Anthony said he hasn’t spoken with Jackson since his exit interview two weeks ago but would like to assist in the decision-making process. And if Rambis – who went 9-19 after replacing Derek Fisher – winds up being the coach next season? “It’s kind of hard to talk about that, because there is nothing imminent with that situation. It’s a process that I think should be taken, and taken seriously,” Anthony said. “I would want to be involved. I hope I’m involved. Just to have my opinion heard. But I’ve already laid out how I feel and put everything out there on the table. Now, it’s just on them.”

Carmelo Anthony and Phil Jackson discussed the Knicks’ coaching search during their exit meetings last month and haven’t spoken about it since. The lack of communication is a bit odd because Anthony has said he wants to share his opinion with the front office during the search. “I’m pretty sure people would assume that [I’d be in contact with Jackson]. I would assume that too. But what can I do? Bang down the door? Knock down the door and point a finger at Phil and say why hell you ain’t … ,” Anthony told ESPN on Thursday during a promotional appearance in Manhattan.
