Doc Rivers stock is rising as the next Sixers coach.
They brought former Cavs head coach and Clippers assistant Ty Lue in for an interview yesterday, but it sounds like Rivers may have jumped all the way to the front of the line.
Former NBA player and current NBA commentator Kendrick Perkins – who played for Rivers for years in Boston – provided some insight into the Sixers-Rivers chatter:
I Honestly think Doc Rivers will be headed to Philly…I strongly believe he will be the BEST thing for Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons!!! Carry on… https://t.co/JPtyhjekAz
