This is an interesting tidbit.
RealGM: Sam Amico of NBA.com writes that the Lakers are worried about giving coach Phil Jackson a long-term contract because they believe a lockout is looming.
It was reported last week that Jackson would likely have to take a pay cut to remain with Los Angeles.
Amico also writes that the Lakers want to eventually replace Jackson with Brian Shaw.
“Lakers want to replace PJ w/Brian Shaw at some point. They’re convinced lockout looms, so don’t want to give PJ a multi-year deal,” Amico wrote on his Twitter page.
