Sixers draft targets -
Huh. Color me intrigued!
Not sure he'd be interested, but would not shock me at all if the Sixers' revamped front office called Karl ASAP.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) June 6, 2013
Sean talked about this one, but it's so intriguing I have to post it again.
There have been no formal requests by teams to speak with Joerger. However, Philadelphia is said to be interested, CA sources say.— Ronald Tillery (@CAGrizBlog) June 5, 2013
H/T to yosoysean on this one.

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.
