Doc Rivers emerging as favorite to land 76ers coaching job

Doc Rivers has been a busy man considering he recently lost his job. The ex-Clippers coach lasted 7 years in LA and while their recent playoff crumble sent him packing, turns out it may not be for long.

Rivers was contacted by the New Orleans Pelicans, Houston Rockets and the Philadelphia 76ers, shortly after the news dropped he was out in LA. While it's not believed he formally has interviewed for the Pelicans or Rockets, an interview has taken place in Philly and word is the job may be Rivers to lose.

The 76ers have also interviewed Ty Lue and Mike D'Antoni. While D'Antoni has been declared by most as the heavy favorite, Rivers' interview on Wednesday night with ownership and management may have changed their minds.
