Michael Curry is one of the candidates to become the Philadelphia 76ers' new head coach, and Thaddeus Young believes Curry would be the best person for the position.

"I think he would be the perfect man for the job," Young said. "He already knows the players and he knows what we need and what we need structure-wise to win games. And he is great defensively. He is a great candidate for the job and I for sure would love to see him as a coach.

"But that is Sam’s (Hinkie) job. To go out there and basically find the best coach, the best person for the job.”

Curry was the lead assistant coach under Doug Collins.
