• Knicks plan news on Tuesday as Jackson talk swirls


    NEW YORK: The New York Knicks announced on Friday (Saturday in Manila) they will make a “major announcement” on Tuesday as reports swirled they will put former Chicago Bulls and LA Lakers coach Phil Jackson in charge of the struggling NBA team.

    ESPN reported that Jackson, who has coached a record 11 NBA championship teams, was expected to complete an agreement on Friday that would put him in charge of all basketball decisions for the Knicks. Jackson, 68, retired as a coach in May of 2011 after having guided the Bulls to six NBA titles in the 1990s and the Los Angeles Lakers to five NBA crowns from 2000-2010.
