New 76ers coach Doug Collins added Quin Snyder to his coaching staff in a developmental role.

The last three seasons, the 43-year-old Snyder was the head coach of the Austin Toros, which is the NBA Developmental League team of the San Antonio Spurs. Previously, Snyder spent seven seasons as the head coach at Missouri, ending in 2006.

Top prospects visit. The Sixers next week will bring in four of the players who are expected to be among the first five to go in the June 24 NBA draft. The Sixers, who own the second pick, will bring in 6-foot-7 Evan Turner of Ohio State, 6-7 Wesley Johnson of Syracuse, 6-10 Derrick Favors of Georgia Tech and 6-11 DeMarcus Cousins of Kentucky.

Kentucky guard John Wall is the prime candidate to be taken by the Washington Wizards, who own the No. 1 selection.
