Collins denies talking to Sixers

Former Sixers guard and current TNT analyst Doug Collins apologized to Sixers GM Ed Stefanski on Tuesday for mistakenly saying he spoke to the team about its coaching job.

Collins told The Associated Press on Tuesday night before Game 5 of the Rockets-Lakers series he had talked with the Sixers about their vacancy “like two or three times.”

“Whatever they want to do, they know where I am if they want to call,” he said.

Collins then backtracked during the game.

“I have not spoken to them. And I want them to understand that,” Collins said on TV. “I feel very badly if there was a miscommunication there at all. I apologize to Eddie Stefanski if they felt like I was putting something out there that was not true.”
