The Nets job "would definitely interest him," the person said.
http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/stor...et-sources-sayJackson's longtime representative, Todd Musburger, told TNT's David Aldridge on Thursday that his client has "no interest in the Nets' job at this time." But a source told ESPN that Jackson would indeed entertain an approach from Brooklyn and that his flirtation with the Lakers after Mike Brown's dismissal five games into the season got him "thinking about coaching again."
Another source insisted Thursday night that the Lakers' presumed reluctance to give Jackson what he wanted, in terms of salary and say in basketball matters, would not be an issue with the Nets, thanks largely to the deep pockets and affinity for stars of billionaire owner Mikhail Prokhorov.
Amazing he will be an excellent fit here. This town was too big and too bright for Avery. As with Kobe, Bynum and Shaq PJ will handle Deron with Ease!!!
