Billy King, the man who preceded Ed Stefanski as president of the Sixers, will interview for the opportunity to replace Rod Thorn with the Nets, according to FanHouse's Sam Amick. King ran the Sixers for nine years before he was fired in December of 2007. He was responsible for drafting Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young, as well as trading Allen Iverson to Denver for Andre Miller, Joe Smith and two first round picks.
Meanwhile, Thorn says that he'd be open to running another team if the opportunity came up in the future. "This team needs new blood and I need a new a challenge if there's one challenge out there," he told Chris Tomasson.
