Mike Zarren, David Griffin and Kiki VanDeWeghe have been identified as potential candidates for the Philadelphia 76ers' general manager job.

Zarren was a finalist for the job and turned down an offer for it before it went to Sam Hinkie. Zarren is a longtime executive with the Boston Celtics and is considered a top candidate.

Griffin is also expected to be interviewed.

VanDeWeghe's name has also been floated as a candidate.

The 76ers parted ways with Bryan Colangelo on Thursday and Brett Brown is running their basketball operations department on an interim basis.
