Hoops Rumors Community Shootaround 10/29/15

The chatter about a potential scenario in which Knicks team president Phil Jackson would return to work for the Lakers and fiancee Jeanie Buss has resurfaced in NBA circles over recent weeks, according to a report by Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. It should be noted that Jackson can reportedly opt out of his five-year deal with the Knicks after this season, though that doesn’t necessarily imply that the executive will depart New York at that time. Speculation emerged earlier this year that Jackson wouldn’t finish out his contract, though he did go on record back in June saying that he wanted to stay around long enough to help the Knicks turn around their fortunes.

This brings me to the topic/question for today: Will Phil Jackson depart the Knicks to return to the Lakers organization?

Is a reunion in the cards for Jackson and the Lakers, or will the Zen Master call it a career once he walks away from the Knicks? How much longer do you believe Jackson will remain with New York? Take to the comments section below to share your thoughts, predictions, and opinions on the matter. We look forward to what you have to say.

    No!! Consider the source notorious Knicks hater Frank Isola. Remember the basketball side of the Lakers are being ran by Jeanie Buss brother Jim. I don’t think he’s rushing to give control to Phil. It’s just Isola hating as usual

      Well, there is that three-year timetable that Jeanie is holding Jim to. Jeanie has said that the benchmark is that the Lakers reach the Western Conference Finals either this year or in 2017. It’s not happening this year, and unless the roster improves dramatically between now and the 2017 trade deadline, the Lakers will fall short of that goal. Jim has indicated that he doesn’t see it as Western Conference Finals or bust, but if Jeanie does, then a strong chance exists that Jim will no longer run basketball operations, creating an opening for Phil if he wants it. But remember, Phil’s already 70. He might want the Knicks job to be his last.
