The Inquirer says the Sixers are asking if Doug Collins would want to leave his cushy TV gig for the privilege of coaching their miserable team. Riiiight: “An NBA source has confirmed that on Wednesday 76ers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski reached out to the agent of Doug Collins to gauge Collins’ interest in the team’s coaching vacancy. John Langel, Collins’ agent, could not be reached for comment. This move appears to be the first formal step taken by Stefanski, who to this point has said he was simply gathering information and sorting through lists and information. The 58-year-old Collins was also a ‘player’ in last season’s coaching search. A year ago, although Collins was said to be interested in the vacancy, he was never contacted by Stefanski.”
