Doc Rivers Interviews With 76ers

Fresh off being let go by the Clippers, Doc Rivers landed in Philadelphia on Wednesday to interview with the 76ers, according to multiple reports.

NBC Sports in Philadelphia posted video of Rivers landing in Philadelphia and then getting in a car.

Rivers was let go by the Clippers on Monday, and could be an attractive option for a 76ers’ team that under-performed and was swept out of the playoffs by the Celtics, leading to the firing of Brett Brown on Aug. 24.

Rivers, 58, is 943-681 (.581) in his career with Orlando, Boston and the Clippers.

He led the Clippers to the conference semifinals three times, but never got them to the West Finals. This year’s team featured Kawhi Leonard and Paul George and was expected to challenge the Lakers in the West Finals, but blew a 3-1 to the Nuggets in the West semis.

Clippers assistant Ty Lue and ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy are the favorites to replace Rivers in L.A.
