The 76ers could wait until after the summer league to hire a head coach, a source tells Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears.
Spears points out that Doug Collins' former assistants are under contract for another year, which means new president and GM Sam Hinkie could have them coach the summer squad while he sorts through what's left of the coaching market. While this might seem troublesome considering some of the names available, Hinkie reportedly prefers a younger coach to some of the veterans available like Lionel Hollins and George Karl. Both Nuggets assistant Melvin Hunt and Heat assistant David Fizdale have been linked to the Sixers job and each will likely still be available after summer-league play concludes. There's also been talk of current assistant Michael Curry, who has the support of Jrue Holiday and co., being promoted to head coach.
Maccabi Tel Aviv reportedly has interest in former 76ers guard Charles Jenkins.
Jenkins wants to test the NBA market before looking overseas, however, so Maccabi's interest is likely to remain unresolved for at least a few more weeks. He played 59 games with the Warriors and 76ers last season, but never scored more than eight points in a game.
The Sixers are interested in Melvin Hunt as their next head coach, a source told the Philadelphia Inquirer.
"The Sixers have not formally made contact to begin the process, but there has been some talk through the back channels," a source said. Hunt is also a candidate to take over the Nuggets vacant job after the dismissal of George Karl.
76ers president and GM Sam Hinkie "probably won't" hire a head coach until after the draft on June 27, according to the Philly Inquirer.
The Sixers have the No. 11 pick and their draft strategy will be crafted by Hinkie, a 35-year-old executive with a wonkish love of advanced statistics. Sources familiar with Hinkie told the Inquirer that he's unlikely to have interest in George Karl, preferring a younger coach such as Heat assistant David Fizdale.
Jeremy Pargo has agreed to a deal with CSKA Moscow, a source told Sportando.
Pargo will earn $2.2 million per season with the team, far more than he could have garnered playing in the NBA. It's a smart move by Pargo to go to a team where he'll be able to get paid and play meaningful minutes rather than scrapping in summer league just for a chance to sit at the end of some team's bench.
Jeremy Pargo is weighing competing offers from CSKA Moscow ($2.2 million) and Maccabi Tel Aviv ($1.3 million).
Pargo played for Tel Aviv in 2010-11, averaging 13.0 points per game before making the jump to the NBA. He appeared in only 39 games with Cleveland and Philly last season, however, and it seems that he's ready to return overseas.
