Sean talked about this one, but it's so intriguing I have to post it again.

Interesting note from Zach Lowe in this piece. We've previously discussed Finch at LB.

"Chris Finch, a Houston assistant and coach of Great Britain’s national team, is a name to watch [for the Sixers coaching job]. Finch has also coached Houston’s D-League affiliate in Rio Grande, and developed a strong working relationship with the parent club from that perch."

REMINDER - RULES OF THE THREAD: As long as you keep it clean (no cursing and please remember to bathe before threading) and respectful, it's fair game. It's your thread - use it as you see fit.

Now, discuss! Happy Friday!
