Ex-Sixer McKie joins team as assistant coach

PHILADELPHIA -- Aaron McKie, the NBA's sixth man of the year
when Philadelphia went to the NBA Finals, rejoined the 76ers as an
assistant coach on Wednesday.

McKie averaged 7.4 points and 3.3 rebounds over a 13-year career
with Portland, Detroit, the Sixers and the Los Angeles Lakers. He
averaged 11.6 points for the 76ers and was chosen the league's top
sixth man in 2001, when they lost to the Lakers in the finals.

McKie, who finished his three-year career with Temple tied for
sixth on the school's career scoring list, was selected Atlantic 10
Conference player of the year in 1993.
