PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia 76ers have interviewed
Dallas assistant Dwane Casey for a second time about their coaching
A person familiar with the decision confirmed the interview on
condition of anonymity because an announcement has not been made.
The date of the interview was not immediately known.
Casey interviewed for the first time last week with Sixers
president Ed Stefanski.
He led Minnesota to a 33-49 record in 2006-07 and was fired 40
games into the 2007-08 season. Casey spent this season on Rick
Carlisle's staff in Dallas.
The other known candidates are Boston Celtics assistant Tom
Thibodeau, former Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, and Sixers
scout Phil Ford. The Sixers informed Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis
this week he was no longer a candidate.
