RUMOR OF THE WEEK: If the New York Knicks don?t advance beyond the first round of the playoffs, I?m hearing they?ll make a major ? repeat, major ? push to lure legendary coach Phil Jackson out of retirement.

With money being no object, the scuttlebutt is the Knicks brass may offer the ?Zen Master? a four-year, $50 million deal.Thanks Gery Woelfel

A well-connected league source told me yesterday that Phil Jackson has "definite interest" in the Knicks coaching job, but that it's "too late in the season" for him to consider coaching this year.

There is also word that Jackson is preparing to have surgery.

I've been asked countless times why would Jackson come to New York and put his legacy on the line and deal with owner Jim Dolan. I can't say that that he will because I don't know but there is league-wide chatter that Jackson has his sites on finishing his career in New York where he started as a player.
