The Zen Master could be making his comeback. On Saturday, Phil Jackson met with Los Angeles Lakers executive vice president Jim Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak.
According to sources, they expect to talk again in a couple of days but no time frame has been set, yet.
The Lakers zeroed in on Jackson on Saturday morning and if their former head coach is amenable to a return under the right conditions, it likely would be on a two-year deal, sources told ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne.
"It's Phil's job to turn down," sources said.
What those right conditions are extends beyond Jackson's health and willingness to return to coaching after retiring after the 2010-11 season. It would need to be "a philosophical match.”
Issues such as how much control over personnel decisions Jackson will want and whether he would travel to all games, same issues that were a problem during Jackson's last stint with the team.
