The Philadelphia 76ers are currently searching for their first new head coach in seven years after firing Brett Brown way back on August 24.
However, the Houston Rockets then parted ways with coach Mike D’Antoni and he immediately caught the eye of the Sixers.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer’s Keith Pompey, the job is D’Antoni’s to lose despite Lue’s upcoming interview:
Lue is scheduled to interview for the job on Tuesday, according to multiple sources. One has to wonder if he thinks his meeting could just be a formality and/or insurance in case former Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni, whose job it is to lose, doesn’t accept the job.
