|Bob Cooney with the scoop again. According to his source, the Sixers are in negotiations with Doug Collins to take over as the Sixers head coach. No surprise here. Assuming they can agree on money and terms, it looks like the job belongs to Collins. Maybe he'll break the news tonight during the Lakers/Suns game.|

|With the number two pick in his back pocket, Ed Stefanski and his entourage made the drive back down the Turnpike to Philly last night. Already, there were rumors about his willingness to trade the pick for a veteran. For my own sanity, I'm going to completely ignore those rumors and assume he will be fired before that is allowed to happen. Instead, let's take a look at the roster as it could stand on June 24th.|

|By now, you already know the Sixers have an 18.3% chance at landing a top three spot in tonight's draft lottery. You may or may not know their odds of walking away with the #6 or #7 pick is over 70%. If you aren't into odds and you just want to know how you should feel during the painfully slow and drawn out unveiling later tonight, check after the jump. I've created a viewer's guide tailored specifically for the suffering Sixers fans.|

|According to Bob Cooney and Phil Jasner (who are apparently getting the scoops this summer in appreciation for the softballs they lobbed at the Sixers all season long), the Sixers are now ready to begin a second round of interviews for their vacant head coach position.|
