The Philadelphia 76ers continue to see their pool of coaching candidates shrink as Mike Brown (Cleveland Cavaliers), Mike Budenholzer (Atlanta Hawks), Mike Malone (Sacramento Kings) and Jeff Hornacek (Phoenix Suns) have reached deals with other teams.

The 76ers have also asked for permission from the Houston Rockets to interview Kelvin Sampson, while also being linked to Chris Finich.

Brian Shaw is another candidate the 76ers have expressed interest in interviewing. The Indiana Pacers have not permitted Shaw to interview until their season ended.
