Is Phil Jackson Heading to the Seattle Supersonics?
The rumor mill is spinning yet again with recent reports that the “Zen Master” aka Phil Jackson is a reported lock for the General Manager position for the soon-to-be reinstated Seattle Supersonics.
According to the Inquistr, Peter Vecsey wrote:
“Source says almost living lock Phil Jackson will become front office face of Seattle-bound Kings’ franchise. Won’t coach. Will mentor choice.”
The Maloof brothers reached an agreement to sell the team Sunday to a Seattle based investment group, are looking to grab another big name in Larry Bird who took the year off to deal with a few personal and health issues, and will return for the 2013-2014 season. The Kings are also looking into San Antonio Spurs GM R.C. Buford but know they will face an uphill battle with trying to acquire him.
