Phil Jackson's GF Jeanie Buss -- In Talks for 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'

Los Angeles Lakers exec Jeanie Buss -- arguably the most powerful woman in sports -- is in talks to join the cast of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the production confirm Buss -- who's dating Lakers head coach Phil Jackson -- met with casting executives recently. In fact, producers went to a recent Lakers game to "observe" Jeanie's daily routine. 

Buss currently serves as the Executive Vice President of Business Operations for the storied NBA franchise -- which is owned by her father Jerry Buss.

We're told Jeanie is diggin' the idea ... and there's already a GREAT storyline ... because current castmember Adrienne Maloof-Nassif's family owns the rival Sacramento Kings.


Bravo declined to comment about casting.
