Gminski and CSN discuss Sixers job

Posted: June 18, 2007

Mike Gminski, a former 76ers center who spent 14 seasons in the NBA, has been contacted by Comcast SportsNet as a possible successor to Steve Mix as the analyst on Sixers telecasts.

"This was really preliminary," Gminski confirmed by telephone from his home in Charlotte, N.C. "They asked if I were interested, and I said I'd love to talk. I'm waiting to hear back from them. I'm wide open."

Gminski recently completed his third 2-year contract as a college basketball analyst for Fox Sports, primarily covering Atlantic Coast Conference games. He has been planning to continue in that role.

Comcast SportsNet has been searching for an analyst since deciding not to renew the contract of Mix, also a former Sixers player.

Bob Salmi, one of the Sixers' postgame analysts, is among those who have been contacted. *
