The New York Knicks and Phil Jackson continue to discuss a deal for him to run the front office.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports that no one in Jackson's camp thinks a deal is "close."
Bill Simmons of ESPN reported on Sunday that Steve Kerr would be the leading candidate to become head coach if Jackson is hired. Frank Isola of the New York Daily News also reports Kerr could be strongly considered.
Kerr is currently an analyst with TNT and was previously general manager of the Phoenix Suns.
