Updating a previous note: 76ers still do not have a head coach

The Philadelphia 76ers do not have a new head coach.

New General Manager Sam Hinkie is adamant that the team has not hired San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown. In fact, Hinkie has said he has not formally interviewed anybody for the position.

A position that has been empty for several months now, as Doug Collins left after the final game of the regular season in April. Since that time, the 76ers have been slow on hiring their next coach, as others have had head coaching vacancies that were shorter than the one in Philadelphia.

Collins resigned after many thought he was going to be fired by the old 76ers administration led by Rod Thorn and Tony DiLeo. Neither Thorn or DiLeo are still with the 76ers, as Hinkie is calling all the shots now.

Even Spurs general manager R.C. Bruford has denied the rumors.

“I would leave it to the 76ers or Brett to comment,” R.C. Bruford said, according to the San Antonio Express-News. “To the best of my knowledge, I think people are jumping the gun on the process. But again, I’m not either the 76ers or Brett.”

Yet, while it is just a rumors that both the Spurs and 76ers have denied, that doesn’t mean that it still can’t happen. Brown is the leading candidate for many head coaching vacancies right now.
