According to an NBA source with knowledge of the Sixers’ hiring process, Adrian Griffin is no longer in the running for the team’s head coaching position.
Griffin, an assistant coach with the Chicago Bulls, was one of four candidates confirmed to have been invited for meetings with the Sixers’ managing partners Joshua Harris and David Blitzer in New York this week.
The other three candidates invited for second interviews are San Antonio assistant Brett Brown, Boston assistant Jay Larranaga and Atlanta assistant Kenny Atkinson.
Michael Curry, who was on Doug Collins’ staff as an associate head coach and is still under contract, is also considered a candidate. Curry continues to conduct workouts with Sixer players and is regularly at the team’s practice facility.
