And what a conversation it was.
The role as president is a completely different from the one as a head coach. They made it to the second round of the playoffs before being eliminated by the Indiana Pacers.
Porzingis is expected to be the centerpiece of the Knicks for years to come.
The 11-time champion as a coach, most in National Basketball Association history, acknowledged that losing as a first-time executive has been hard. He also coached the Lakers’ defense during part of Jackson’s run.
He met with Anthony a day earlier, a meeting he said was cordial.
Porzingis, 21, has two years remaining on his rookie contract. There were high-profile players like Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and Courtney Lee added but the chemistry was shot from the very beginning.
It appears that Jackson meant good with his statement but Anthony might have understood it differently.
Carmelo Anthony has worn a Knicks jersey for the last time if Phil Jackson gets his wish. “If you really believe that’s (the problem), then we’ve solved our problem”. We’ve got to go somewhere else.’. We talked about him going through rehab and work and whatever he has to do. Once Phil Jackson assumed control of the Knicks in late 2014, the team has gone a combined 80-166 over the past three seasons.
In an interview with Ian Begley of ESPN after the Knicks’ final game of the season against the Philadelphia 76ers, Carmelo Anthony was asked about the possibility of getting traded this summer.

Jackson and the Knicks front office will be facing a crucial offseason.
One thing I do know, is you don’t want your two star players unhappy.
Let that sink in for a minute.
On what planet is this acceptable?
Anthony said Wednesday that he would “love” to return to the Knicks but wanted the team to make a commitment to winning immediately.
After hearing the press conference, Anthony posted a photo of Leonardo DiCaprio from the Great Gatsby on his Instagram account.
While clearly flattered by the idea of joining the New York Knicks, Tim Cone says he is content with being in the PBA. It’s a ideal encapsulation of the pathetic state of what is supposed to be one of the league’s flagship franchises, but instead has become a laughingstock.
That’s on Hornacek. And that will be why, more than in his first three failed seasons, Jackson will be helping out Hornacek. The common theme seemed to be that Jackson was looking to trade the most respected player in the locker room.
