Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Jackson not likely to run Raptors front office

The SportsXchange

Phil Jackson's chances of becoming the Toronto Raptors' president of basketball operations are "remote," according to Sportsnet.ca.

Jackson, winner 11 NBA championships as a coach, has ties to MLSE head Tim Leiweke, which run the Raptors. Jackson coached the Los Angeles Lakers when Leiweke headed AEG, which operates the Staples Center.

Jackson met with MLSE last week. Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo may resign this week.

It has been reported that Jackson has interest in running a team's front office.

However, Jackson reportedly wants to keep his options open, including waiting out the proposed sale of the Sacramento Kings to a Seattle group, before making a decision.
