Sixers Assistant Sam Cassell a Candidate for Head-Coaching Jobs
Sixers assistant coach Sam Casell is expected to have interest around the league to become a head coach with multiple positions now open.
Four teams now have openings, Boston, Orlando, Portland and Indiana.
Per Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report, one team that could have an interest is the Orlando Magic, who Fischer says would be popular among the young returning players for the Magic.
Choosing Sixers assistant Sam Cassell would be popular among Orlando's group of returning players, sources said.
Cassell has been a big addition to the Sixers bench, and can routinely be seen working with Ben Simmons before games and at practice and is a big part of the teams success this season. The top-seeded 76ers have a 2-1 series entering Monday night's Game 4 in Atlanta.
He has also be mentioned as a possible replacement in Boston, where he played for one season winning a title, as a replacement for Brad Stevens, now the team’s president of basketball operations.
Cassell is a three-time NBA champion during his playing days winning twice with the Houston Rockets and once with Boston.
He has spent time as a coach with the Washington Wizards and Los Angles Clippers.
