Lloyd Pierce Rumors
Keith Pompey: NBA sources have confirmed the #Sixers hired Lloyd Pierce. He is #Memphis’ player-development coach.
Marc J. Spears: Sixers have agreed in principle to hire up and coming Grizzlies assistant coach Lloyd Pierce to a similar position, source told Y! Sports.
Lloyd Pierce is the latest person rumored to receive consideration for the 76ers vacate coaching job. But it appears this rumor might not have a lot of legs to stand on. The Sixers have a policy of not commenting on rumors. A league close to Pierce said the Sixers have not requested permission to interview the Memphis Grizzlies assistant. “Don’t think so,” the source of there being any truth to the rumor. “Haven’t heard anything about it on this end. Who put that out there?”
