Phil Jackson Caught Tampering With Another Player; Fined For Actions

Phil Jackson needs a new head coach for the New York Knicks.

After Steve Kerr spurned the team for the Golden State Warriors, Jackson openly wants to bring in his former point guard Derek Fisher.

The potential fine comes from a comment made at a press conference last week where he spoke about possibly having Fisher come over to New York as a head coach. Only problem is that he was still playing in the playoffs!

“The last two summers, Derek and I have talked about the next step in his career. So I kind of know what he wants to do, and his feelings. He’s got family in L.A. He’s got little kids still in L.A. I have no idea if he wants to move his family and come here. Those are things that he would have to express. There are so many unknowns.”

As for whether he will accept the job, the jury is still out on that front.
