Philadelphia 76ers have second interview with Utah Jazz assistant GM Justin Zanik

The Sixers and Justin Zanik are breaking bread


According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Utah Jazz assistant general manager Justin Zanik had a second interview with Sixers Ownership.

The Sixers will also interview Gersson Rosas of the Houston Rockets. These dinners have to be important for the Sixers who went an entire offseason without a GM after Bryan Colangelo was fired for his infamous Twitter scandal.

This is a great opportunity for Zanik who would have a chance to take the reigns of a team with burgeoning stars in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. This would also be a solid hire for the Sixers to work with an up and coming GM who helped draft Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Zanik also has experience with the Jazz development team that helped develop players like Joe Ingles and could help develop former #1 pick Markelle Fultz reach his potential.
