A league source indicated late Sunday night that (Phil) Jackson was “stunned” when the Lakers called to inform him they had chosen (Mike) D’Antoni. He had been prepared to accept the job Monday if negotiations between his agent and the Lakers went well. Jackson’s agent Todd Musberger had been scheduled to fly in to Los Angeles on Monday
Jackson and the Lakers had never spoken about a salary, the source said, “but he knew coaches don’t make what he used to make anymore.”
Jackson, the source said, never intended to miss any more road games than he had in his previous stints with the Lakers.
