The 76ers have agreed in principle to hire Chad Iske as an assistant coach on Saturday, a league source has confirmed.

Iske comes to the Sixers from the Denver Nuggets, where he oversaw scouting of the upcoming opponent and assisted in the game-plan preparation.

He is the second assistant hired to Brett Brown's coaching staff. The Sixers hired Lloyd Pierce last week.
