Phil Jackson continues to consider his next move, and it may extend beyond finding a coaching gig.
Could a front-office job be in his future?
"I've had some talks with people, and there are some interesting situations that are presenting themselves, but I really haven't made up my mind yet what I'm going to do," Jackson told the San Francisco Chronicle. "None of it involves coaching. ... There are three or four teams that have been interested."
He elaborated that he has interest in having influence in hiring a coaching staff and creating a culture.
"It goes all the way down to -- not down to, but includes -- trainers and the people who are doing the hands-on work with players, that have to be really embedded with how you put a team together," Jackson told the paper. "The support group is important; guys who get an opportunity to hear and talk and influence the players." It would be a real opportunity to implant the game, a culture that I believe in -- that's the intriguing part."
