Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Danny Ferry has emerged as a finalist to replace Rod Thorn in the same capacity with the Philadelphia 76ers, according to a tweet from Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. Philadelphia's head coach Doug Collins is on board with the idea.
Ferry, currently Vice President of Basketball Operations for the San Antonio Spurs, was at the helm of the LeBron James-era Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs made the playoffs in each of Ferry's five years in charge, including one trip to the NBA Finals and two seasons with the NBA's best regular season record.
