According to a league source, Hall of Fame coach Phil Jackson is on the verge of accepting a Knicks front-office position.

“It’s real close,’’ the league source said.

According to an ESPN.com report, the position’s title could be president of basketball operations. But a league source said, despite the fancy moniker, Jackson wouldn’t be usurping the current power of new president/general manager Steve Mills.
