Lucas to Coach 76ers

n PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia 76ers are hoping John Lucas can do for them what he did for the San Antonio Spurs -- turn a loser into a winner. Philadelphia owner Harold Katz will appoint Lucas coach and general manager, according to anonymous sources quoted in both of the city's daily newspapers Tuesday. Lucas, 40, who coached the Spurs to a 94-49 record in less than two seasons in his first head coaching job, will be the first person hired as both coach and general manager of the 76ers.
