According to the CBS TV in New York Phil Jackson is the Knicks’ new president of basketball operations.
As CBS 2’s Otis Livingston reported, there was no word Wednesday on when Jackson will be officially introduced. But his hiring was confirmed by NBA TV Wednesday night.
Reports earlier Wednesday said the Hall-of-Famer Jackson had agreed in principle to run basketball operations for the Knicks, according to the New York Post.
Carmelo Anthony said earlier Wednesday that the hiring would not have an impact on his decision to stay or leave via free agency this summer. But he had plenty of praise for Jackson and his background. MORE..
