Phil Jackson's role likely overstated

"Phil came in for a couple days, and we had a couple phone calls after that. He was on board with it," Dumars said. "We talked some playoff series the Pistons and Bulls had (laughs), we had some good conversations about that." [...] "The thing he and I talked about most wasn’t the Pistons coaching position but coaching in general," Dumars said.

Read more at the Detroit News. In hindsight, it doesn't sound like Phil Jackson had a very large role at all. Perhaps instead of him doing Tom Gores a favor, as everyone reported, this was Gores tossing Jackson a bone to help get his name out there for a potential front office gig.
