There is reportedly some doubt regarding the future of Doc Rivers as head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers.
Appearing Friday on NBA Today, ESPN NBA insider Ramona Shelburne said, "Everyone around the league that I've talked to said let's keep an eye on this one," regarding Rivers' status in Philly.
Shelburne's report came on the heels of Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey giving Rivers a vote of confidence Friday.
During a season-ending press conference, Morey was asked if he could assure fans and media members that Rivers would be back as head coach next season, and he responded, "Yes."
Morey also called Rivers a "great coach" and noted that he has loved working with him.
The 76ers' 2021-22 season came to an end Thursday when they fell to the Miami Heat 99-90 in Game 6 of their second-round playoff series, marking the fifth consecutive season that the Sixers were knocked out of the playoffs in the second round or earlier.
Philadelphia hired Rivers prior to the 2020-21 season as the replacement for Brett Brown, who was fired after a first-round playoff exit. That move was made shortly before the Sixers hired Morey on the heels of a long run in the Houston Rockets' front office.
