76ers GM Elton Brand has met with "several top candidates" for the franchise’s head coach opening and the team expects to bring a shortlist of candidates to Philly within 10 days for the next round of interviews, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported.
"Former Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni, ex-Thunder coach Billy Donovan and Clippers assistant Ty Lue are expected to be part of the next round of interviews and are strongly vying for and interested in the position," Shams adds. Brand is on the record saying that he doesn't intend to trade Ben Simmons or Joel Embiid so they'll be looking to bring in someone who could maximize their talents while upgrading the rest of the rotation after they were exposed in the playoffs.
