It’s almost ridiculous to think that the Philadelphia 76ers are still without a head coach. Yet here we are, inching closer to half way through the month of August and the Sixers are still on a captainless ship — and the list of potential coaches is only getting smaller.
According to Dei Lynam of CSN Philly, Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin met Philadelphia’s managing partners, Joshua Harris and David Blitzer, this week to interview for the Sixers head coach vacancy. However an NBA source with knowledge of the hiring situation acknowledged that Griffin is no longer considered a candidate for the position.
That leaves just three remaining options for the 76ers brass. Boston Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga, San Antonio Spurs assistant Brett Brown and Atlanta Hawks assistant Kenny Atkinson have also met with Harris and Blitzer and are said to still be in the running.
Brett Brown and current Philadelphia assistant Michael Curry have been rumored as being the preferred options for the Sixers for over a month.
