PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia 76ers have interviewed Dallas assistant Dwane Casey for a second time about their coaching position.

A person familiar with the decision confirmed the interview on condition of anonymity because an announcement has not been made. The date of the interview was not immediately known.

Casey interviewed for the first time last week with Sixers president Ed Stefanski.

He led Minnesota to a 33-49 record in 2006-07 and was fired 40 games into the 2007-08 season.

The other known candidates are Boston Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau, former Washington Wizards coach Eddie Jordan, and Sixers scout Chris Ford. The Sixers informed Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis this week he was no longer a candidate.
