Woj: Lakers are "all in" with Phil

Stephen Dunn

It is getting more and more likely that Phil Jackson is going to coach the Lakers again.

The Yahoo! Sports NBA insiders have spoken, and they are reporting great news if you are a Phil Jackson fan (and who among us isn't?). Per Adrian Wojnarowski, the Lakers are going all in with Phil Jackson and they have declined taking meetings with other candidates at this time.

As Lakers meet w/ Phil Jackson today, they've declined meetings w/ any other candidates, source says. "They're all in on Phil," source says.

Marc Spears also tweeted about the situation with this bit of info:

Source close to another coaching candidate tells Y! @Lakers are pushing hard to get Phil Jackson and haven't set up anything with his client

Based on the string of information that Yahoo! has been getting since Mike Brown was fired, I think it is safe to assume that Spears is referring to Mike D'Antoni. That would confirm the suspicion that the two top candidates for this job were D'Antoni and Jackson.
