05:37 PM ET 05.23 | Newly-appointed Philadelphia 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie is wasting little time in ramping up his head-coaching search, and in a big way. Hinkie skipped out on the NBA Draft Lottery festivities with a mission on his hands. The mission was to speak to Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw, who is still coaching in the Eastern Conference Finals. Hinkie made a strong move by visiting Indianapolis, according to CSN Philly's Dei Lynam. It's a play that could give the 76ers the upper hand on other teams once Shaw's season with the Pacers is over. And it's similar to the one the Chicago Bulls made when they visited coaching prospect Tom Thibodeau a few years ago when the Boston assistant was still in the midst of a Finals run.
