“I don’t think he’ll coach again,” said Cavaliers forward Luke Walton, who spent seven seasons under Jackson with the Lakers. “I think he’ll get involved in basketball — but as far as the travel, and all the long practices and preparation, I don’t think he will.”
Jackson led the Lakers to five championships and seven Finals appearances from 1999-2011. He coached the Bulls to six titles before that.
Jackson’s name has come up quite a bit lately, as the Lakers are 0-2 under current coach Mike Brown, in his second season with the team. They also lost all eight preseason games.
