The Philadelphia 76ers expect to bring in a shortlist of coaching candidates including Mike D’Antoni, Billy Donovan and Ty Lue.
76ers GM Elton Brand is leading the head coaching search and the franchise will bring these three coaches to the Philadelphia area within the next 10 days for the next round of interviews, according to Shams Charania.
Lue was considered an early frontrunner for the 76ers’ job and D’Antoni and Donovan emerged when they parted ways with the Houston Rockets and Oklahoma City Thunder, respectively.
The 76ers have also been linked to other potential coaching candidates including Dave Joerger, Darvin Ham and Mike Brown.
However, it is increasingly likely that the 76ers new head coach comes from the trio of D’Antoni, Donovan and Lue.
Donovan also interviewed for the Indiana Pacers head coaching job last week, according to Charania.
