Published April 4, 2014
FIRST ORDERS OF BUSINESS: Jackson said that he has "spent his first few weeks on the job mostly in assessment mode, as he anticipated would be the case." He said that he talks daily with GM Steve Mills, has "had a few 'getting-to-know-you' chats" with Anthony and "met with the team's scouts this week to begin discussing his vision for the future." On Long Island, Jim Baumbach notes Jackson "doesn't expect to sit still this offseason" despite the team's "salary-cap issues." Jackson: "There's always ways to make moves. Even though the limitation and flexibility is limited, but we anticipate we're going to try and improve the team at every position we can" (NEWSDAY, 4/4).
