8 MILLION REASONS WHY SIXERS RIVERS AIN’T HEADED TO LAKERS!

By Tommy Matthews

Sixers head coach Doc Rivers has been mentioned as the possible replacement for fired Lakers coach Frank Vogel.

And while Rivers is reportedly intrigued with the idea, he and the 76ers are reportedly on the same page about their future together, according to Bleacher Report’s Jake Fischer:

But despite widespread rumblings of Rivers’ intrigue in the Lakers’ opening, and incessant talk of Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey perhaps desiring a different play-caller, the 76ers have maintained that Rivers and team leadership remain aligned about their future together. Rivers’ contract runs through 2024-25 at $8 million per season, which is a hefty price for ownership to swallow.

That contract alone is enough of a reason for the 76ers to be hesitant about parting ways with Rivers as that would be a big price to pay. Not to mention Philadelphia is still in the midst of a playoff run with a chance to make it to its first Eastern Conference Finals since 2001.
