In 2014, Phil Jackson was introduced as the President of the New York Knicks. Buss noted that it was clear Jackson wanted to get back to work, and he has too sharp of a basketball mind to sit in a rocking chair. The move did not affect their relationship and Buss and Jackson remain in a bicoastal relationship.

They were engaged at one point but in 2016 announced their separation. Phil earned $11 million per year to be the President of the Knicks before they parted ways in June 2017.
