Could Cleveland be getting a superstar for the vacant coaching position with the Cavaliers?  Could be, ESPN.com is reporting.

Phil Jackson, who has won 11 NBA championships with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, has been out of the game two years.  ESPN reports the Cavaliers have been in touch to see if Jackson has a desire to return to the sidelines.  Cleveland fired Byron Scott last week.

Jackson wants to return to the NBA, ESPN reported last week, and would like to be in a managerial position.

Another coach on Cleveland’s radar, ESPN reports, is former Cavaliers coach Mike Brown.  He was fired by the Lakers early this season.
