Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports relayed a string of news items for us on Tuesday night, which range from the Sixers never-ending coaching search to the Bobcats front office. Let's take a look at the latest from Spears:
- The Sixers have received permission to interview Miami assistant David Fizdale for their coaching vacancy, Spears writes. We know the team has interest in Ed Pinckney, Adrian Griffin and Melvin Hunt, as well as in-house candidate Michael Curry and C's assistant Jay Larranaga, but this is the first mention of Fizdale and Philly in more than a month.
- The Raptors are expected to buy out the final two years on the contract of Marcus Camby, who came over to Toronto in the Andrea Bargnani deal, tweets Spears, who lists the Clippers, Bulls and Rockets as teams with interest in the veteran center. Camby is still owed about $7.5MM through the 2014/15 season.
- The Bobcats have promoted Larry Jordan, the older brother of owner Michael Jordan, to team director of player personnel, Spears writes. Larry's previous job title was team director of special projects, and he now takes over a job that has been vacant for three years, according to Spears. He will report to his brother, as well as team president Rod Higgins and GM Rich Cho.
