The Philadelphia 76ers are now beginning to fill out the rest of their coaching staff after a disappointing 2019-20 campaign.
After some heavy interest in former Sacramento Kings coach Dave Joerger, they have now officially added him to Rivers’ staff. Joerger coached both the Kings and the Memphis Grizzlies for three seasons each and he had success in Memphis taking them to the playoffs all three seasons. In Sacramento, he coached Buddy Hield to the best numbers of his career and he did a great job developing De’Aaron Fox.
Former Kings and Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger has agreed to join Doc Rivers’ staff as an assistant coach, sources tell ESPN.

The Hield situation was brought up as the Sixers would most likely want to entice him to try and force a trade to Philadelphia.
