🚨The Knicks are moving on from Phil Jackson, should the Lakers bring him back? 🚨 🔘The #NewYorkKnicks and team president #philjacksonwill announce that they're parting ways early Wednesday morning, sources told #ESPN.
Conversations about what was best for the team's future between Jackson and #knicksowner #jamesdolanaccelerated this week when the franchise decided it would not buy out embattled forward #CarmeloAnthony, sources said.
🔘Asked in an interview with MSG Network why he would consider trading #Porzingis, a young star regarded around the #nbaas someone a franchise can be built around, Jackson replied, "The future, you know, what it brings. Does it bring us two starters and a draft pick or something that's even beyond that? [That's] something we have to look at as far as going down the road. We know what he is. He's a unicorn and he's special." Porzingis skipped exit meetings with Jackson and Mills in April because of frustration over the dysfunction and drama surrounding the #Knicks.
🔘Asked last week on #msgNetwork what he'd tell Knicks fans who were 'uneasy.' "Well, I think, we know what we're doing," Jackson said. "That's what I can say to them. Although it's not been apparent in our record the last couple of years, we've grown from within. We've got young players who are on their move up. It takes time to rebuild with youth. And, I think, to have confidence in the fact that we're going to have good players and we're going to have a good team and we're going to be on the court, competitive."
