Knicks And Phil Jackson Announce Mutual Separation
The NBA's New York Knicks and team president Phil Jackson have agreed to end their relationship, according to multiple media outlets.
Jackson has been with the Knicks for the past three seasons. He was instrumental in the drafting of star big man Kristaps Porzingis. But the team has struggled during his tenure as president. The Knicks have missed the playoffs in all three seasons of the Jackson era.
Phil Jackson won 11 NBA championships during his coaching career, winning six titles with the Chicago Bulls and five with the Los Angeles Lakers during two stints with the team. He won two titles as a player with the New York Knicks in 1970 and 1973.
