Former legendary head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers and the Chicago Bulls, Phil Jackson, will not be joining the Toronto Raptors organization. It has been rumored for a while that Jackson is looking for a job in the NBA, and would like a leading role in a front-office. The Raptors have been linked with Phil several times over the past few weeks, but it looks like it is not meant to be.
According to Michael Grange, who covers Toronto-related sports for SportsNet, Jackson will not join the Raptors:

It is understandable that the Raptors wanted to get their hands on such a prominent figure in the basketball world, but it doesn’t look like it will happen. It is still uncertain of what Jackson will do. He has been highly coveted among teams who are looking for a new coach, with Brooklyn Nets reportedly offering him the head coaching job. However, Jackson is said to have no interest in coaching again.
