Jackson Talks To Pippen About Comeback

Lakers coach Phil Jackson says he has talked to 41-year-old Scottie Pippen about making a comeback with the team.

“I did get in touch with Scottie,” Jackson said before the Lakers played the Suns on Sunday, “but it was just preliminary talk about how he’s doing, where he’s at and how he feels.”

Jackson coached Pippen while both were with the Bulls during their title years. Jackson said Pippen is interested in coming to Los Angeles.

“I would say he kind of talked about the parameters of what he thinks he can do to help,” Jackson said.
