>>Phil Jackson Interested In Role With Blazers

(Portland, OR)  --  Phil Jackson is apparently interested in returning to the NBA.  The "Oregonian" cites a source as saying the retired head coach is interested in a non-coaching role with the Portland Trail Blazers.  It's unclear whether the Blazers are interested in Jackson as an advisor.  The 66-year-old won a record eleven NBA titles as head coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers in addition to two as a player.  Jackson retired from coaching after the 2010-11 season.
