Phil Jackson won’t be paid for advising Pistons in coaching search

Marc Stein and Ramona Shelburne of ESPN:

But one source close to the situation told ESPN.com that Jackson’s willingness to counsel Gores and Pistons president Joe Dumars as they weigh candidates to replace the ousted Lawrence Frank is an unpaid consultancy stemming from Jackson’s friendship with Gores and "does not foreclose any options" with regard to the 11-time championship coach’s intentions to find a new full-time NBA management job.

When news of the Pistons’ hiring Phil Jackson broke, I wrote this would most likely be irrelevant or counterproductive (though helpful is certainly a real possibility, too).

We still don’t know which it will be, but put a tally in the irrelevant column.

    What if our next coach ends up being Horace Grant?

    So if this coach screws up, is this Dumars fault, Gores fault or Phil’s?

      That was kinda my thought too.  For the last two years Dumars has been taking the blame for hiring Frank, when he wasn’t even the guy he wanted.

    This has got to be just another PR move to gin up interest because this essentially didn’t need to be announced.  I do wonder, since no money is being exchanged, if any legal confidentiality agreements were signed.  Because otherwise this is truly pointless.
