Blazers give permission

Portland coach Maurice Cheeks has received permission to speak to the Philadelphia 76ers about their coaching vacancy, a basketball source told The Associated Press.

The Trail Blazers on Wednesday turned down Philadelphia's initial request to speak to Cheeks as a possible replacement for Larry Brown. The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Portland changed its mind after Detroit fired coach Rick Carlisle on Saturday.

Man this is a quick merry-go-round for coaches this year. A ton of potential moves.

It is a bizarre off season for coaches. I don't remember this many changes in a while.

I do know that whoever ends up with Rick Carlisle is going to be looking good.

If Portland can score Carlisle they could be a pretty solid team. Not that Cheeks did a poor job mind you. I think Cheeks deserved some coach of teh year consideration for keeping that trainwreck on the tracks.
