The Philadelphia 76ers appointed on Thursday former Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers as their new head coach.

The Pennsylvania-based franchise parted ways with Brett Brown in August after being swept by the Boston Celtics in the first round of the 2020 NBA playoffs.

Rivers previously spent seven years with the Clippers before he got fired by owner Steve Ballmer following the Western Conference Semifinals loss against the Denver Nuggets.
