Best Options for Next Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach
Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

As July comes to a close, the Philadelphia 76ers remain the only team in the NBA without a head coach, leading more than a few fans to ask, "What's the holdup, Hinkie?"

Fortunately, the NBA's schedule gives the Sixers no reason to rush to get a guy at the end of the bench. Hiring someone now would probably silence a few critics, but with training camp typically beginning in late September/early October, actual coaching isn't yet a concern.

In the absence of competition for the remaining head coach candidates, due diligence is the only priority for the new 76ers management team. Josh Harris and Sam Hinkie can only bid against themselves at this point, so being patient and waiting to get their guy is the name of the game.

"Their guy" is going to have some unique requirements compared to many coaches around the league. Development of young players such as Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel will take precedence over winning games, which might be a tough pill to swallow for assistants looking for their big break.

So who appears up for such a challenge?
