Sixers Coaching Smoke & Mirrors: Hinkie reaches out to Bulls' Ed Pinckney, Adrian Griffin
These guys seem alright. From Kelly Dwyer: "If Philadelphia's Sam Hinkie is going after Ed Pinckney and Adrian Griffin for a head coaching job, then I am a Sam Hinkie fan. Pinckney is just a significant, big-time basketball brain, and Griff is constantly calling out opponents plays from the bench."
