The Bucks interviewed Sixers assistant Michael Curry for their head coaching job during the draft combine last week in Chicago, reports Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times. There's "increasing speculation," according to Woelfel, that the Bucks will end their search for a coach by the end of this week.
Curry joins Nate McMillan, Kelvin Sampson, J.B. Bickerstaff, Steve Clifford and Larry Drew on the list of candidates the team has interviewed. The Bucks also had informal meetings with Stan Van Gundy and Jerry Sloan.
The Sixers were reportedly set to interview Curry last week for their head coaching vacancy, and he appears to have the support of the players in Philadelphia. Curry was also linked to the Cavs last month before they hired Mike Brown. The 44-year-old Curry spent one season as Pistons head coach, going 39-43 and getting swept out of the playoffs in the first round the year Detroit traded Chauncey Billups for Allen Iverson.
