The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly interested in Phil Jackson filling the head coaching void that was created after Byron Scott was relieved of his duties last Thursday.
ESPN's Brian Windhorst and Marc Stein have the news:
"As they did eight years ago when he was in retirement, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reached out to Phil Jackson about their head coach opening, sources told ESPN.com."
The offseason has officially begun for the Cavs, but it's clear they would like to have a head coach in place before proceeding with anything else.
While Jackson, one of the most successful NBA coaches of all time, is obviously a no-brainer target, it's difficult to imagine the Zen Master coming out of retirement for this particular job.
That’s not to say this position is a bad one.
