It looks like legendary coach Phil Jackson is headed to the Knicks front office.

Carmelo Anthony let the news slip during an interview on Wednesday.

He said he heard Jackson will become the team's new president of basketball operations.

Neither the Knicks nor Jackson have confirmed the news.

Jackson played for the Knicks during their only two championship seasons in 1970 and 1973.

He went on to win 11 NBA titles as head coach of the Bulls and Lakers before retiring in 2011.
