by

Well, that didn’t take long.

Doc Rivers parted ways with the Clippers on Monday after spending seven seasons with Los Angeles.

He quickly garnered the interest of the Philadelphia 76ers and New Orleans Pelicans before meeting with the Sixers on Wednesday.

It appears that meeting went well enough for Rivers to land a new job.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Thursday, citing sources, the 76ers and Rivers have reached an agreement for the 58-year-old to become the franchise’s next head coach.

This will be the fourth NBA team Rivers has coached. He replaces Brett Brown, who recently was fired by Philadelphia after seven seasons.
