David Vanterpool Rumors

If the job doesn’t go to Brown, the search for Doug Collins’ replacement would remain competitive, the source said. Portland Trail Blazers assistant David Vanterpool; Sixers assistant Michael Curry, a holdover from Collins’ staff; and Boston Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga are believed to be the other serious contenders. The source confirmed that Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin also interviewed for the job.
Portland Trail Blazers assistant coach David Vanterpool interviewed for the Philadelphia 76ers’ head coaching opening on Monday and has emerged as a serious candidate for the job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Philadelphia general manager Sam Hinkie has moved deliberately on the search, interviewing multiple candidates, but Vanterpool has risen into legitimate consideration, league sources said.
