Former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson has reached a multiyear agreement to return to ESPN as an NBA game analyst. Jackson will work Sunday during ESPN's telecast of of Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers. Jackson will join play-by-play commentator Mike Breen and fellow analyst Jeff Van Gundy, reuniting the trio that broadcast the NBA Finals for five consecutive years starting in 2011. A former All-Star point guard during his 17-year career as a player, Jackson was fired by the Warriors earlier this month following the team's first-round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. The Warriors have hired Steve Kerr, another analyst without coaching experience.
