Phil Jackson Told Derrick Rose That Knicks Will Pursue Kevin Durant

The Knicks just took a huge step up after trading for Derrick Rose, and Phil Jackson is reportedly not done.

According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Jackson welcomed Derrick Rose to the Big Apple by telling the point guard he intends to pursue free agent Kevin Durant.

According to a source, Jackson told Rose of his plan to pursue Durant starting on July 1st. That in of itself may be the worst-kept secret in the NBA, along with the notion that Golden State, San Antonio, Miami and both Los Angeles clubs are also planning to recruit Durant.

The difference now, however, is that the Knicks are not only selling Durant on Madison Square Garden and Madison Avenue, but also a roster that features a triangle we can all understand; Carmelo Anthony, Kristaps Porzingis and Rose, who turns 28 in October.

Rose was acquired by the Knicks on Wednesday from the Chicago Bulls, in exchange for Robin Lopez, Jose Calderon, and Jerian Grant.
