Jackson had also done consulting work for the Detroit Pistons, but that was publicized. This went much more under the radar.
ESPN’s Marc Stein tweeted an interested point last week. Jackson has a wrap for picking his jobs strategically and positioning himself for success, whether it be with the Chicago Bulls just before the explosions of Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen’s careers, or with the Los Angeles Lakers just as Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant became a championship caliber duo. However, as an executive, he’s only worked with some of the league’s most difficult situations.
They don’t get much tougher than the Knicks’ gig. Clearly his time helping other franchise’s is done now, because his hands are quite full.
This is a damning blow to the Cavaliers’ playoff chances, which were already slim to begin with. They’re four and a half games back of the eighth seeded Atlanta Hawks, who have won three straight. The Knicks are only three and a half behind them and have won six straight themselves. It was going to be quite difficult already, but with Irving out another trip to the lottery seems inevitable.
His third season will go down as great individually but extremely disappointing from a team perspective. The Cavaliers will try to offer him a max contract extension this summer. If Irving refutes things will get interesting, but with him only having the ability to become a restricted free agent next offseason, it could be a long, drawn out saga.
The report said that Maynor is hoping to catch on a rebuilding team with a spot for him beyond this season, but with the regular season winding down Maynor will likely have to wait until this offseason before finding his next team. The market won’t be as strong as it was offseason, though, as he really had a disappointing campaign this season.
