NBA Rumors: New York Knicks eyeing Scottie Pippen, other former Bulls to help Phil Jackson


The New York Knicks are in the process of finding a new head coach but it seems that they’re also in the process of getting the old Chicago Bulls band back together as well. While it’s been heavily rumored that Steve Kerr will be accepting that head coaching job and working under former Bulls head coach Phil Jackson, it appears that other 90s era Bulls stars are on Jackson’s radar for other jobs as well.

According to Newsday’s Al Iannazzone, the Knicks are looking at Scottie Pippen, Ron Harper, Bill Cartwright and others to help Phil Jackson revive the team.

This is actually something that isn’t as bad an idea as it might seem. Those 90s Bulls teams had nothing if not a ton of chemistry and while Michael Jordan isn’t in the mix here, most of his supporting cast seems to be as we could end up seeing as many as four former Bulls dynasty stars join the Knicks.

It’s unclear what jobs they’d be taking but there appears to be interest. Getting the old Bulls band back together could be an exciting way to take the Knicks into the future as even if it’s not completely original, the Knicks just need to win and if there’s a group of guys who know hoe to do that, it’s the 90s era Chicago Bulls.
