Mark Jackson Hoping for the Call

Mark Jackson has never coached at any level, not even as an assistant.  But he's hired an agent and hopes to get on someone's short list. Jackson talked to team executives both last year (Knicks and Timberwolves) and in 2008 (Suns), but didn't have agent.  Ken Berger of CBS Sports says the two teams that are most "sensible" landing spots for the 44 year old Jackson are the Clippers, near where he lives, and the Nets, near where he grew up.  Berger says the Clippers offer a ready-made situation while the Nets are more "longer term". The Pacers, where Jackson had productive years, might also be looking for a coach this summer.  Jackson did commentary for Nets games on YES for three years, ending in 2008.  He teamed with both Marv Albert and Ian Eagle.

There's no indication the Nets, who reportedly want a big name, are interested in Jackson.
