The 76ers could wait until after the Orlando rookie summer league on July 7-12 to hire a head coach, according to Yahoo! Sports.

That’s because the Sixers current assistant coaches are under contract for another season, according to the report. They would be available to coach the summer-league team.

The organization is seeking a replacement for Doug Collins, who resigned in April with another year on his contract. He compiled a 110-120 record after three seasons.

Miami assistant David Fizdale, Sixers assistant Michael Curry, Denver assistant Melvin Hunt and Houston assistants Chris Finch and Kelvin Sampson are reportedly being considered for the job.
