Just yesterday, Phil Jackson’s agent Todd Musburger told David Aldridge via text that, “Phil has no interest in the Nets job at this time.” But it looks like that might have changed.

A source told CBSSports.com on Thursday night that the Nets job and the possibility of coaching a Brooklyn team have intrigued Jackson.  Jackson is meticulous with offers and will explore all facets of the coaching job before returning to the sideline.

No offers will be made until Nets officials meet with owner Mikhail Prokhorov. After that, the Nets will reportedly reach out to the 11-time champion coach about the job.
