As New York Knicks president Phil Jackson attempts to rebuild the Knicks organization into a winning franchise, his first order of business is to surround himself with his people.
That likely means quite a few former Chicago Bulls.
It’s already being rumored that one of Jackson’s former Bulls’ players Steve Kerr is the frontrunner to land the Knicks vacant coaching gig and he may not be the only one as it looks like plenty of other Bulls from the 1990’s could be on their way.
It’s unclear right now what role any of the former Bulls would serve, but all signs indicate that they would all be interested.
Harper, who played for Jackson in Chicago and Los Angeles, told Marc Berman of the New York Post that he expects to interview for a position:
“I would expect so…A few guys are expecting to hear from (Jackson),” said Harper. “We’re in a wait-and-see mode. Whatever he needs me to do, I will do. He knows that.”
The main goal to run a successful basketball organization is to surround yourself with good basketball minds from the top to the bottom.
It’s not necessarily a horrible decision to bring all of these ex-Bulls aboard.
The main goal is to win in New York and these guys knew how to do that.
