Jackson joins Knicks

Phil Jackson will be introduced as the newest member of the New York Knicks’ front office Tuesday morning, according to a person familiar with the negotiations between the 11-time champion coach and the team. The Knicks would only confirm that a “major announcement” was scheduled. The move had been expected for several days, with Knicks star Carmelo Anthony saying earlier in the week that he was told Jackson would be “coming on board” with the team. Jackson will likely have complete control of the team’s basketball operations. Jackson played for the Knicks’ last NBA championship team in 1973. He has been out of the league and largely out of the public eye since 2011, when he ended his coaching stint with the Los Angeles Lakers. – Associated Press
