Atlantic Notes: Raptors, Jackson, Nets, Wallace

Here’s a look at the latest out of the Atlantic as the Nets look to even up their series with the Bulls tonight in Chicago..

  • Doug Smith of the Toronto Star hears from a lot of people that Phil Jackson to the Raptors isn’t far-fetched at all.  However, he also spoke to someone who suggested that Jackson wouldn’t leave his kids, grandkids, and fiancé on the West Coast.  Because of that, the source suggested that Seattle – if the Kings wind up there– might be a more logical landing place for him.
  • As the Nets find themselves down 2-1 to the Bulls, forward Gerald Wallace says that he doesn’t “have a clue” as to what his role is supposed to be, writes Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.   Wallace signed a new four-year, $40MM deal with Brooklyn over the summer.
  • Jackson looks primed for a return to the NBA, opines Joel Brigham of HoopsWorld.  If anyone could make that return happen north of the border, Brigham writes, it’s new Raptors hire Tim Leiweke.
