Sixers To Interview David Vanterpool

MONDAY, 1:56pm: Vanterpool's interview is happening in Philadelphia today, according to Wojnarowski (via Twitter).

FRIDAY, 4:23pm: As their search for a new head coach extends into its fourth month, the Sixers have requested and received permission to speak to Trail Blazers assistant David Vanterpool, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). It appears to be the first time Vanterpool has been linked to a head coaching opening this offseason.

Spurs assistant Brett Brown and Sixers assistant Michael Curry have long been cited as the frontrunners for Philadelphia's vacancy, but the team's search has been extensive. In addition to Brown, Curry, and Vanterpool, the team has also been linked to Heat assistant David Fizdale, Bulls assistants Ed Pinckney and Adrian Griffin, Hawks assistants Kenny Atkinson and Quin Snyder, Nuggets assistant Melvin Hunt, and Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga.

The 76ers will be the last team to name a new head coach during an offseason in which nearly half of the NBA's clubs made changes. When they officially make a decision, the Sixers will become the 13th team to hire a new head coach since the season ended.
