OKC is reportedly having some troubles re-signing its head coach Scott Brooks, and if a deal doesn't happen soon. Phil Jackson could possibly be the next coach according to ESPN's Marc Stein:
 
The reality is that Brooks and his bosses, after months of talks, don't have a deal ... and time is running out. And sources say that the Thunder, just to be safe, have started brainstorming in-house about whom they plan to pursue should negotiations with Brooks collapse. Two names, according to sources, that have come up in those discussions: ESPN's Jeff Van Gundy and, yes, 11-ringed coaching free agent Phil Jackson. 
 
You'd still be wise to expect an extension for Brooks in the near future. 
 
It just makes too much sense after the Thunder mowed through the Dallas Mavericks, Los Angeles Lakers and San Antonio Spurs to get to the Finals, as well as knowing how much Thunder architect Sam Presti cares not only about continuity but also Brooks' understated manner. 
 
Talk of a big-name replacement -- much like the recent whispers that Brooks himself might be moved to chase either the Orlando or Portland job if his talks with the Thunder continue to stall -- could just be the sort of talk designed to impact negotiations.
 
The Thunder are so close to getting a title, Phil Jackson could be the right push to help Westbrook fully use his potential, and Durant become the best player in the league. Brooks has been with OKC for a while though, so it will be hard to let him go. I feel like he will end up taking what the franchise gives him.
