There’s a large, loud segment of Knicks fans clamoring for Phil Jackson to choose Mark Jackson as the team’s next head coach. There’s been no indication as of yet that the Zen Master is considering Mark Jackson as his head coach.

So where does that leave Jackson’s prospects with the Knicks?
Scott Brooks is hoping Phil Jackson reaches out to Derek Fisher but not for at least another four weeks.

The former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson has agreed to a multi-year deal to rejoin ESPN’s lead N.B.A. announcing team.
