Philadelphia 76ers General Manager Search: Danny Ferry Tops List Of Candidates, According To Report

With Philadelphia 76ers general manager Rod Thorn rumored to be seriously contemplating retirement and the team opening a search for replacements, Doug Collins is reportedly pushing for Danny Ferry to be named Thorn's successor.

Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Ferry has emerged as the front-runner for the position, and the two sides have already opened discussions.

Ferry was the Cleveland Cavaliers' general manager from 2005-2010, a period during which the Cavaliers achieved much success. But he failed to build a worthy supporting cast for LeBron James, and some of his roster decisions -- like acquiring Antawn Jamison and his oversized contract -- might have helped to push James out of Cleveland.

After resigning from his position in Cleveland with a month remaining on his contract in 2010, Ferry has worked with the Spurs for the last two seasons.
