Report: 76ers in talks with Mike D’Antoni

The 76ers are talking to Mike D’Antoni about becoming the associate head coach on Brett Brown‘s staff, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

There was no indication in the Friday report whether a deal was imminent. But the timing is obviously connected to Philadelphia hiring Jerry Colangelo as chairman of basketball operations four days earlier, with Colangelo and D’Antoni having worked together with the Suns and USA Basketball.

News about D’Antoni possibly joining the 76ers came hours after Brown’s two-year extension became public, indicating D’Antoni was not being brought in to replace Brown as Philly goes through another painful season as part of a rebuilding plan showing little to no sign of real progress.

    @agosti: I liked MCW too, but it didn’t matter who they had. Hinkie was too busy driving the bus into the wall for it to matter. They have the raw material, they just have no style. They should promote the people they hired, yesterday.
