Phil Jackson's decision to return to the NBA is contingent on the resolution of the Sacramento Kings sale, ESPN.com reported Saturday.
Jackson, winner of 11 NBA titles as coach of the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, has expressed interest in taking a front office job for a team.
Jackson reportedly wants to wait to see if the Kings get sold to the Seattle group that is looking to buy the team. ESPN.com recently reported that Jackson "hit it off" with Chris Hansen, who is leading the Seattle group.
It upped its offer Friday to buy the Kings from the Maloof family to $625 million and move them to Seattle. Hansen is reportedly interested in hiring Jackson as the team president if the sale goes through. However, the NBA's relocation committee already voted to deny the move of the franchise. A final vote by the owners on the issue is scheduled for Wednesday.
