Stu Jackson has served as the NBA's vice president of basketball operations since 2007, but now he is pursuing a return to the front office of a team, according to sources.

The NBA could have a dramatic restructuring in its front office next year when David Stern steps down as commissioner. 

Jackson was an NBA head coach for three seasons, from 1989-91 with the New York Knicks and in 1996-97 with the Vancouver Grizzlies.
