Sixers announce Lynam will not return

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers coach Maurice Cheeks
announced that assistant coach Jim Lynam will not return to the team this
season because of undisclosed health reasons.

Lynam took a leave of absence from the team during training camp in October.
He rejoined the Sixers this offseason after serving as an assistant coach with
the Portland Trail Blazers for the past four seasons (2001-05).

Lynam was a head coach with three different teams — the San Diego/Los
Angeles Clippers (1983-85), Philadelphia 76ers (1987-92) and Washington
Bullets (1995-97).
