Philadelphia 76ers ownership — including Josh Harris and David Blitzer — will meet with Doc Rivers in Philadelphia on Wednesday night on the franchise’s head-coaching job, sources tell ESPN.
Rivers talked earlier Wednesday with general manager Elton Brand. Other top candidates — including Mike D’Antoni and Ty Lue — also met with Brand and ownership.
Rivers is the final candidate in the process. A decision is expected this week.
Rivers and the Los Angeles Clippers parted ways Monday after his seventh season as head coach ended with their surprising ouster from the NBA playoffs by the Denver Nuggets in the Western Conference semifinals. Sources said Rivers had two years left on his contract.
