Nash, Lynam reportedly meet

May 02, 1994|By Jerry Bembry

Washington general manager John Nash reportedly met with Philadelphia 76ers general manager Jim Lynam over the weekend about the Bullets' vacant coaching position.

The job became vacant on April 24 when Wes Unseld resigned after the Bullets' last game.

Neither Nash nor Lynam was available for comment.

Nash has refused to answer repeated phone calls since Unseld's resignation, and Lynam was reported to be away from his Philadelphia-area home last night and also has declined to return phone calls in the past week.

Lynam, who coached the 76ers for 4 1/2 years in the 1980s when Nash was the team's general manager, suddenly has become a hot commodity.

He has been rumored to be the leading candidate for several possible coaching openings, including those of the Miami Heat and Charlotte Hornets.

The Bullets were granted permission last week to talk with Lynam, whose contract as 76ers general manager expires in June.
