As usually happens in the NBA, before a new head coach is appointed, he gets approval from the team’s stars.

According to Keith Pompey, Nick Nurse, who has reportedly been appointed as the next head coach of the 76ers, he met with Joel Embiid during the coaching interview process.

Nurse has reportedly chose Philadelphia over Phoenix due to his desire to coach Embiid and his connection with the team’s general manager Daryl Morey.
