Doc Rivers is a "sleeper candidate" to become the next head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic.
Rivers, 61, spent three seasons with the Sixers winning 49, 51, and 54 games, respectively, in his three seasons as head coach. However, Rivers failed to get the Sixers past the second-round of the playoffs, blowing a 3-2 semifinals series lead against the Boston Celtics.
After winning the NBA Championship in 2007-08 as the head coach of the Boston Celtics, Rivers has struggled as head coach of the Clippers and Sixers blowing a 3-1 series lead three times and going 6-10 in Game sevens. Rivers is now 17-33 in games where his team had a chance to clinch a playoff series.
The Sixers are now searching to replace Rivers. Possible replacements for Rivers include Mike Budenholzer, Sam Cassell, Mike D’Antoni, Nick Nurse, Frank Vogel and Monty Williams, according to Woj.
