76ers meet with Majerle, Williams

76ers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski has met with Phoenix assistant coach Dan Majerle and Portland assistant coach Monty Williams. Both interviews took place in Phoenix, AZ.

Stefanski, who was joined by assistant general manager Tony DiLeo and team consultant Gene Shue, issued the following statement about Williams via a press release: 

"Monty has proven to be a valuable asset on the bench in Portland," Stefanski said. "He has a wealth of experience both as an assistant coach and as a player in this league."

Stefanski said this about Majerle: "Dan has been integral to the success of the Suns on both ends of the court this season," Stefanski said. "He has played for some of the best coaches in the history of the league and his approach to coaching is the same approach that made him so successful as a player - hard work, dedication and a team-first philosophy."

Today's interviews brings the total to six: Doug Collins, Avery Johnson, Bill Laimbeer, Sam Mitchell, Majerle, and Wiliams.

Also, as posted earlier, the Sixers will be sending rookie point guard Jrue Holiday as their team representative to the NBA Draft Lottery, scheduled for May 18.
