Article Summary:

The Sixers on Thursday hired Doc Rivers as the franchise’s 25th head coach, sources confirm to Eyewitness News.

Rivers comes to the Sixers just a few days after the Los Angeles Clippers fired him after seven seasons. Rivers has been the coach in five of the Clippers’ six best regular seasons. Sixers forward Tobias Harris played in 87 games for Rivers before the Clippers traded him to the Sixers in 2018-19.

His biggest challenge with the Sixers will be figuring out how best to use stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid and elevating the team back into the conversation of an NBA title contender.

Rivers replaces Brett Brown as the Sixers’ head coach.
