Aaron McKie to join staff

The 76ers will bring back former player and coach Aaron McKie as an assistant coach, this according to a source within the organization.

McKie, who was most recently released by the Grizzlies in May, will join a Sixers’ assistant coaching staff that includes Jim Lynam, John Loyer, and Jeff Ruland.

The Sixers are expected to make the official announcement on Monday.

McKie, who graduated from

Simon Gratz High School in Philadelphia and then starred at Temple in the early ‘90s, played for the Sixers from 1997-2005. After a short stint with the Lakers, McKie returned to the Sixers in 2007 as an assistant coach.

Because the Lakers still held McKie’s rights -- despite being a coach with the Sixers -- he was involved in a sign-and-trade with the Grizzlies.

On June 22, McKie was arrested for lying on a gun-application form. McKie received probation in the case.
