76ers General Manager on the coaching search: “We’re going through a careful process

May 22, 2023

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania  – The Philadelphia 76ers’ general manager, Daryl Morey, expressed the organization’s intention to conduct a meticulous process in their search for a new head coach.

In reference to the coaching search, Morey stated that they will proceed with caution and not rush the decision-making process.

Morey acknowledged the decision to part ways with Doc Rivers, who led the team to the Eastern Conference semifinals in each of his three seasons as head coach. The 76ers’ defeat against the Boston Celtics in Game 7 prompted the evaluation of their coaching situation.

Having carefully reviewed the situation, Morey presented the recommendation to the ownership for consideration, and it was ultimately approved.

According to ESPN, several notable names, including Mike Budenholzer, Sam Cassell, Mike D’Antoni, Nick Nurse, Frank Vogel, and Monty Williams, have been mentioned as potential candidates for the vacant coaching position.

Morey emphasized that the players, including newly crowned NBA MVP Joel Embiid, will not have a direct influence on the selection process.

Regarding James Harden’s future, Morey expressed the team’s interest in bringing him back, but also stated that alternative options will be explored if necessary.

Morey expressed confidence in the team’s roster, stating that numerous teams would desire to have the talent they possess. He also highlighted their successful start in the NBA draft lottery, aiming to secure a first-round selection and nurture a player with the potential to become an MVP-caliber talent.
