Phil Jackson apparently would like to have another stint in the NBA.
The 11-time champion coach said Thursday evening on "The Tonight Show" that he was interested in a front-office job with the Seattle group that failed in an attempt to relocate the Sacramento Kings.
"I had communication with the guy that's trying to make this move," Jackson said on the show, referencing Chris Hansen, the leader of the Seattle bid. "It was serious talk. I thought he was a really good guy for the league."
Now that the team will remain in Sacramento, Jackson said he will not be working for the franchise.
"I won't be doing the [front-office] job in Sacramento. I like Sacramento," Jackson said. "Well, not that much."
In his appearance, he also joked about the Lakers choosing to hire Mike D'Antoni as Mike Brown's replacement, instead of Jackson.
