Phil Jackson goes on vacation, reportedly puts Knicks’ coaching search on hold
It must be exhausting.
So, it appears the Knicks president took off on a tour the American West:
No big deal. Everyone has cell phones. Jackson can still run the coaching search from afar.
This matters only if Jackson isn’t just going to hire Rambis anyway. But if the Knicks are interested in exploring candidates other teams – Rockets, Pacers and Kings – might want, Jackson is missing a valuable opportunity.
Reminder: The Knicks are paying him $12 million per year – money that could have lured someone with a record of front-office success or even just the commitment to delay a vacation until after hiring a coach.
