Mark Jackson remains a coaching free agent a season and a half after the Golden State Warriors parted ways with him in 2014.

"I think he's going to have a hard time getting hired again in the NBA," said Lowe on his podcast. "The craziness of how his last year went in Golden State and some of the stuff that has come out since... I think it would take a superstar player going into ownership (saying) 'my time here depends on you hiring Mark Jackson.'"

"I just know this: that if a team does background research on Mark with his old employers, it's going to be a hard hurdle for him to clear," said Brian Windhorst. "That's not me. That's people who might be hiring him have told me."

Jackson led the Warriors to the playoffs in two of his three seasons with the franchise.
