AP reports Sixers add Casey to coaching mix

In a development that will fail to excite anyone, the Sixers have added former Timberwolves coach and current Mavs assistant Dwane Casey to their short list of candidates for the head coaching job.

An NBA executive with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press that Casey will interview with the Sixers.

The Sixers confirmed Monday they will interview Boston assistant Tom Thibodeau.

After spending 11 seasons as an assistant in Seattle, Casey was hired by the Wolves in 2005. Minnesota went 33-49 in Casey’s first year and were 20-20 when Kevin McHale fired him in 2007-08.
