The Lakers are taking the all-hands-on-deck approach with their head coach search.
The franchise wants to bring aboard the right person who can make the most of LeBron James' remaining tenure and help construct the appropriate roster. During an appearance on ESPN's NBA Today, longtime NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski revealed that Hall of Fame head coach Phil Jackson will have input in determining the next hire.
"This is very much a committee in L.A. putting together this coaching search," Wojnarowski said via Bleacher Report. "One person who is certainly significantly involved is Phil Jackson. He's got a voice in this. He did last time when they hired Frank Vogel, he and Kurt Rambis."
Jackson's involvement shouldn't be a surprise, given his connection to team president Jeanie Buss. Although having him be a part of the selection process is intriguing, it doesn't necessarily mean it's the right move.
The Lakers have spent the last several years working with their internal brain trust to push the franchise forward. Aside from James and Anthony Davis' arrival, the team has struggled to find consistency.
Time will tell what unfolds, but it will be interesting to see how much say Jackson gets into choosing the Lakers' next head coach.
