UPDATE: Add two more assistants to Philadelphia's suddenly lengthy list of coaching candidates.
A day after requesting interviews with a pair of Chicago Bulls assistants, a tweet by Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday reports that, according to sources, the 76ers "have permission and will interview Atlanta assistants Kenny Atkinson and Quin Snyder for head coaching job."
ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard reported yesterday that the 76ers received permission from the Bulls to interview assistants Ed Pinckney and Adrian Griffin for their head coaching position. On top of that, Boston assistant Jay Larranaga met with the 76ers on Tuesday, and current 76ers assistant Michael Curry is also squarely in the mix. Denver assistant Melvin Hunt and Memphis assistant Lloyd Pierce are two other names that are still linked to the job as well.
