An AP source close to the situation is reporting that Doug Collins has agreed to become the next head coach of the 76ers. Terms of the deal were not immediately known, and the announcement is expected to be made on Friday, with Collins officially introduced Monday. Our Sixers blog, Liberty Ballers, says the hiring is hardly a surprise. But while the decision may not come as a surprise, it doesn't necessarily mean it is a good hire.

Collins has a career 332-287 record, with Chicago, Detroit and Washington. Read the full reaction at Liberty Ballers.
