Two more names apparently have been added to the 76ers' coaching wish list.
The Sixers have received permission to speak to Chicago Bulls assistant coaches Ed Pinckney, 50, and Adrian Griffin, 39, for their vacant coaching position, ESPN reported.
Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie has not interviewed either coach, according to the report, but has done background checks on both.
Coaching the Sixers would be a homecoming of sorts for Pinckney. He was named the most outstanding player of the 1985 Final Four after leading Villanova to the NCAA title. Pinckney was the Sixers' television analyst for the 2009-10 season; he spent the last three seasons as a Bulls assistant. He recently interviewed for the Memphis Grizzlies coaching job that went to David Joerger.
