Stefanski likes Cheeks

The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Philadelphia 76ers head coach Maurice Cheeks is close to receiving a contract extension from the team.

The Inqy is saying the deal is "imminent," but Cheeks refused to discuss it before Tuesday's 104-88 loss to Minnesota.

"I don't comment on those matters," Cheeks told the newspaper. "I am just going out there and trying to win a game."

A four-time All-Star with the Sixers, the 51-year-old Cheeks is just 96-127 in two-plus seasons as head coach but has handled the team's young players well.
