Phil Jackson Reportedly Fell Asleep During An NBA Draft Prospect’s Workout (VIDEO)
It has not been a good week for New York Knicks fans as team President Phil Jackson continues to make head scratching moves, then makes it even worse by speaking.
Former NBA player and current ESPN analyst Jay Williams says he was told by a draft pick expected to be selected in the top 15 of Thursday’s draft that Phil possibly didn’t see much of his workout recently, because he fell asleep during it.
“A top-15 draft pick told me the other day — because we were involved in this conversation about Phil Jackson and the Knicks — he said Phil Jackson was falling in and out of sleep during my workout,” Williams said “Yes. ‘Falling in and out of sleep at my workout.’ This is what this guy told me.”

Jackson has already went on record and stated he is actively trying to trade Kristaps Porzingis, and he made it abundantly clear he doesn’t want Carmelo Anthony on the team anymore, either.
