Mark Jackson Will Not Interview with Sixers

Per Phil Jasner:

Mark Jackson, the former NBA point guard and current ESPN analyst, has decided to decline an opportunity to interview for the 76ers' coaching job.  

The Sixers had been trying to schedule a meeting with Jackson, but Jackson sent word Tuesday that he was trying to determine whether he wanted to proceed. He informed Kauffman today of his decision.

This news does not disappoint me one bit.  It's now official that the 76ers will not have a head coach next year without any coaching experience whatsoever (assuming they don't hire Jaleel White).  

Now all the Sixers need is for Mike Breen to turn them down and they'll complete the trifecta.  Let the head coaching search continue with an interview with Jordan's main squeeze Monty Williams.  Fiesta.

Update 11:13 PM

Per Adrian Wojnarowski:

Philadelphia GM Ed Stefanski plans to interview Portland assistant Monty Williams on Monday, league sources say.
