The NBA veteran is heading back to the ESPN broadcast booth. Mark Jackson has inked a multi-year deal to return to the network and serve as an NBA game analyst, ESPN said today. Jackson previously served as an ESPN NBA game analyst from 2006 to 2011. He left to coach the Golden State Warriors, a three-season stint that lasted from 2011 until earlier this month. Jackson will rejoin his former booth-mates, play-by-play commentator Mike Breen and analyst Jeff Van Gundy, during the Eastern Conference Finals, starting with Game One on ABC this Sunday at 3:30 PM ET.
