76ers can talk with Bulls assistants

The Philadelphia 76ers have received permission from the Bulls to interview Chicago assistants Ed Pinckney and Adrian Griffin for their head coaching position, according to a league source.

Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie has not yet interviewed either coach, but he has done extensive background checks on each.

Hinkie will reportedly interview Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga about the job and is also known to have interest in Denver assistant Melvin Hunt.
