Jay Larranaga still a serious candidate for 76ers job

USA TODAY Sports

Good luck with that. - Sincerely, Doug Collins

Philadelphia is laughing all the way to the dunk tank this year, but the rules say that they have to have a head coach so they will begrudgingly hire someone, ...at some point. I think.

They don't really have any more competition for head coaching jobs but they are definitely keeping a lot of team's assistant coaches stuck in limbo.

Source says 76ers favor Brett Brown as new coach

Brett Brown is the preferred candidate for the 76ers coaching job, according to a league source. If the job doesn't go to Brown, the search for Doug Collins' replacement will remain competitive, the source said. Portland Trail Blazers assistant David Vanterpool; Sixers assistant Michael Curry, a holdover from Collins' staff; and Boston Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga are believed to be the other serious contenders.

I think that Philly needs to just give the job to Brown (my top choice for the Celtics before I knew that Stevens was even a viable option) and get on with it already. But what do I know?
