The Brooklyn Nets have targeted Phil Jackson as their primary choice to become head coach, according to sources.

Jackson's longtime representative, Todd Musburger, told TNT's David Aldridge on Thursday that his client has "no interest in the Nets' job at this time." 

But a source says that Jackson would entertain an offer from the Nets.

The Nets presumably would have no difficulty in meeting Jackson's salary demands.

Avery Johnson was fired as head coach of the Nets on Thursday.
