Pre-draft buzz and Phil coming back?

Posted on: June 22, 2009 12:49 pm
Some good pre-draft buzz from, plus a semi-commitment from Phil Jackson to return for one more title run with the Lakers.

Jackson hasn't committed to coming back for the final year of his contract, and he has a loose deadline with management to inform the team of his intentions in the next 2-3 weeks. In this radio interview, Jackson repeats that he has some medical issues that must be resolved before he decides, but adds, "I’d still like to push on through another year if possible.”

You can also find transcripts and audio clips of Memphis GM Chris Wallace saying he has no qualms about picking Ricky Rubio at No. 2 without working him out ... Brandon Jennings having no regrets about bypassing college to play in Europe ... Stephen Curry saying he thinks he's going to the Knicks ... and Rajon Rondo addressing trade rumors.
