Doug Collins couldn’t get a bite from the 76ers when their coaching job
was open last summer, but he has – according to a source familiar with
the situation – drawn interest now from the New Orleans Hornets.
Jeff Bower, who completed this season as both coach and general manager, has given up his coaching duties to concentrate on the front office. He served in a dual capacity after the firing of Byron Scott.
The source said the Hornets’ contact with Collins, 58, has been preliminary. Collins, who spent his entire NBA playing career with the Sixers, was unavailable for comment. *
