NBA insider for ESPN, Adrian Wojnarowski, calls into SportsCenter to detail what brought Doc Rivers (age 58) to the Philadelphia 76ers just days after the coach parted ways with the LA Clippers. Rivers was fired after the Clippers were unexpectedly eliminated at the Western Conference semi-finals by the Denver Nuggets.

Wojnarowski also covers up how Rivers past former Houston Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni (age 69) for the 76ers job position. Rivers, who won the NBA Finals with the Celtics in 2008, is set to coach players like Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, and Al Horford.
