Philadelphia 76ers To Wait On Hiring A Coach?

After mutually ending Doug Collins’ tenure with the team, the Philadelphia 76ers are in need of a head coach, but according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo, the team could wait until the end of summer league to hire a new coach.

While a lot of teams are part of the head coaching frenzy and are trying to grab top candidates such as Lionel Hollins and Brian Shaw, the Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie seems content just to wait it out.

The Sixers will probably be letting go of Andrew Bynum, which means that the team will be going through a rebuilding process. As such, Hinkie would probably prefer to go for a young coach rather than an established one that will require a big pay check.

Gettting through summer league without a head coach really isn’t that big of a deal, as assistant coaches can handle the event.

It was earlier reported that Jrue Holiday, among others, are in support of team assistant coach Michael Curry being promoted to head coach, so that is always a possibility down the road.
