Assistant GM Tony DiLeo will be the interim head coach for the remainder of the season, the sources said.  Cheeks’ deal with the 76ers, who started the season 9-14, was guaranteed through next season.

After signing Elton Brand to a five-year deal worth nearly $80 million in the offseason, the Sixers have looked nothing like last season’s up-tempo squad that advanced to the playoffs.

The 76ers had lost eight of 10 games entering Saturday night’s game against the Washington Wizards in Philadelphia.
