Former Spur Jackson could coach locked out players

Former San Antonio Spurs player Jaren Jackson currently coaches in the National Basketball League of Canada. Imagine the possibility of him coaching a player like LeBron James or Dirk Nowitzki?JJ

According to the site Cbc.Ca, many locked out NBA players have been invited to join the Canadian league should the NBA still be in a lockout when their season kicks off in November. Jackson currently coaches the Mill Rats.

Jackson played in San Antonio as a player from the 97′ to 01′ season. He was a role player on the 99′ championship winning team hitting clutch shots for the Spurs in the playoffs.

Is there a chance a major NBA star goes north to play in Canada? Highly doubtful, but there is a chance smaller named players could go north of the border to stay in basketball shape during the uncertain lockout.
