Phil Jackson‘s tenure as president of the New York Knicks from 2014-17 was a disaster on all fronts, including his reported inability to prepare for and communicate with free agents. 

During an episode of The Woj Pod (via NBC Sports’ Dan Feldman), ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski detailed some of the issues involving Jackson’s lack of preparedness during meetings:

“I heard some horror stories about Phil in presentation situations with players – unprepared, just disorganized. And sometimes, he’d have Steve Mills in there, who’d try to re-direct him. But I know of a couple players who walked out of meetings in a couple different free-agent scenarios and, ‘Wow, that was Phil Jackson? That’s not how I imagined he’d be.'”
