Today's Philadelphia Inquirer has a pretty comprehensive list of people contacted regarding the open 76ers coaching position. Link and quote after the jump - please note that Larry Brown's name is NOWHERE to be found. He may go there as GM or VP but true to his word, he won't be coaching. So we know he isn't a liar. Now we just have to wait and see if he's being creative with the truth and planning to leave Charlotte for a non-coaching position.
Here's what we have so far: Former NBA coach and TNT analyst Doug Collins, contacted. Former Dallas Mavericks coach Avery Johnson, contacted. On the list: Dwane Casey, assistant coach with the Mavericks; Tom Thibodeau, assistant coach with the Boston Celtics; and Mike Budenholzer, assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs. Also reportedly being discussed internally: former New York Knicks coach Jeff Van Gundy, former NBA head coach Mike Fratello, and former Toronto Raptors coach Sam Mitchell. And on the periphery, Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson, whose team is one game from a surprising first-round elimination.
