Phil Jackson met with Carmelo Anthony on Friday in Los Angeles and is headed to Turkey this week to attend his son's wedding and is scheduled to return prior to next week's NBA Draft. 

The days leading up to the draft is typically among the busiest on the NBA calendar, but Jackson will cut the trip short in order to resume his duties as president of the New York Knicks.

The Knicks are hoping to trade into the first round and/or buy a second round pick.
