Lakers owner Jerry Buss and general manager Mitch Kupchak met with Kobe Bryant for a half hour during the game Tuesday to discuss the possible return of Phil Jackson, sources told the Los Angeles Times.
Bryant said that he would agree to Jackson's return, the paper reported.
Jackson, who is in Australia on vacation, told the paper in an e-mail that he was thinking about the possibility.
Kupchak said Wednesday that he hadn't talked to Jackson and that the Lakers have had no "business contact" with Jackson, but acknowledged that he and Buss likely would discuss the former coach.
