The Sixers are interviewing coaching candidates in New York this week for the second round of interviews for their vacant head coaching position. A number of people are up for the job, including favorite Brett Brown, but it was Bulls assistant Adrian Griffin who met with the Sixers for three hours on Tuesday according to ESPN's Marc Stein.
Griffin, 39, played nine NBA seasons between 1999-2008 making stops with the Boston Celtics, Dallas Mavericks, Bulls, and Seattle Supersonics. When he was released by the Supersonics in 2008, he was hired by the Milwaukee Bucks to be an assistant under head coach Scott Skiles. Griffin worked under Skiles for two seasons before joining Thibodeau's staff with the Bulls in 2010.
I still don't think Griffin gets the job probably because I really want Brett Brown to get it. However, what I want more than that is for this process to come to an end so we can finally talk about basketball. I mean think about it - Doug Collins stepped down on April 18th and on August 6th the team begins the second round of interviews for the position. That is nearly four months later and nearly three months since general manager Sam Hinkie was introduced to the media on May 14th.
