The 76ers appeared focused on Mike D’Antoni in their coaching search.
Then, Doc Rivers surprisingly became available.
The former Clippers coach met with the 76ers and is now in the center of the conversation.
For the Sixers now, the focus is on Rivers and D’Antoni, a source told ESPN. A decision is expected this week.
Rivers would be an easier fit with this roster than D’Antoni, whose style doesn’t appear to work as well with both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. Rivers also looks like he’d help Philadelphia take the next step.
But that seemed like it’d be true with the Clippers and wasn’t.
Rivers’ availability has definitely thrown a wrench in the coaching carousel.
