Sixers Coaching Search Update —- Dropping Like Flies
The Sixers coaching search is still in it's infant stages.
As the Sixers stand pat, other teams are filling their vacancies, however.
On Sunday the Charlotte Bobcats hired former Lakers assistant Steve Clifford, their second coach in two years.
That same day, the Phoenix Suns hired Jeff Hornacek as their next head coach.
Hornacek has no head coaching experience and was reportedly on the Sixers short list, although that was when Tony DiLeo was leading the search and not new GM Sam Hinkie.
Longtime basketball writer Peter Vecsy tweeted on Tuesday that Warriors assistant Mike Malone is a 'living lock' to be the next Kings head coach.
Like Hornacek, Malone was reportedly on the Sixers short list while DiLeo was leading the search.
CSN Philadelphia confirmed a report out of Milwaukee that associate head coach Michael Curry has interviewed for the Bucks head coaching position.
Curry has one year of head coaching experience and was publicly endorsed by Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner earlier this month.
Then comes Pacers assistant Brian Shaw.
Hinkie flew to Indiana to interview Shaw during last week's draft lottery as he was preparing to face the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.
Shaw is the second candidate to be interviewed by Hinkie, Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson was also reportedly interviewed.
Sixers are among four teams still searching for their next head coach.
