Philadelphia 76ers General Manager Search: Sixers Meet with Danny Ferry, According To Report

The Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly met with Spurs front office executive Danny Ferry during the weekend about the general manager/president job with the Sixers (via Yahoo! Sports). Ferry has become a front runner for the position with another candidate (Bucks general manager John Hammond) seeming unlikely to leave his post.

The report about Ferry meeting with the Sixers also reveals that current Philadelphia head coach Doug Collins is pushing for more power and has been spearheading the move to replace Sixers president Rod Thorn. Yahoo sources also said that Collins supported Ferry's candidacy for the position. Thorn has one year remaining on his three-year deal with the Sixers.

The Yahoo report also states that the Sixers are uncertain about how much power to give Collins, who guided Philadelphia to the playoffs the past two seasons, including this year's run to the Eastern Conference Semifinals.
