Tiger Fighting October 2 According to ESPN reporters, former Clippers coach Doug Rivers has reached an agreement with the 76ers and will become the new head coach of the 76ers.
The source said that in the interview last Wednesday, Rivers and the 76ers general manager Elton Brand quickly established contact. After pursuit and negotiation, the two parties quickly reached an agreement on a multi-year contract. The agreement finally officially landed a few minutes ago.
According to Shams’ supplementary report, Rivers’ contract with the 76ers is a five-year contract.
Rivers parted ways with the Clippers on September 29 this year and ceased to serve as the Clippers head coach, which subsequently triggered a multi-team pursuit. Yesterday’s sources showed that Rivers has replaced D'Antoni as the number one candidate for the new head coach of the 76ers.
The 76ers fired the team's head coach Brett Brown after being out of the first round of this year's playoffs and have been looking for a new head coach.
