Poor Seattle NBA fans. Not only did the Kings stay in Sacramento, but now the fans have the “what if” of knowing that Phil Jackson was interested in a front office job if the team moved to the Pacific Northwest.
Jackson confirmed he spoke with Chris Hansen, the potential buyer of the Kings, prior to David Stern‘s decision to keep the team in California on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and that he had interest in taking on a role with the team if it moved to Seattle. He’s not interested in the role now that the Kings are staying in Sacramento.
Check out Jackson talking about his future employment opportunities, plus some funny Shaquille O’Neal anecdotes, in the video below.
