Sixers coach Doug Collins leaves nothing to chance, and, with the collective bargaining agreement set to expire on June 30 and a lockout pending, he is making sure everything is in place beforehand.
"Here's what my plan is," Collins began. "[Assistant coach] Michael Curry and I and my assistant coaches, we are going to try and see every one of our players before July 1.
"Monday, I will be back here, and [assistant] Brian James and I will have dinner with Thad [Young]. Michael Curry is going to see Mo Speights for a couple days. Then I'm going to meet Michael in Atlanta on Tuesday, and we're going to have dinner with Jodie [Meeks], and the next day, we're going to have lunch with Lou [Williams].
