Daryl Morey stands by Doc Rivers after another disappointing 76ers playoff exit

The Philadelphia 76ers will stand by coach Doc Rivers for at least one more season. President of basketball operations Daryl Morey said Friday that Rivers will be the team's coach for the 2022-23 NBA season.

Morey's statement comes a day after the 76ers were prematurely eliminated from the postseason. The 76ers dropped Thursday's game against the Miami Heat, 99-90. With the loss, the 76ers were eliminated from the postseason.

That's been the team's modus operandi the last couple seasons. The 76ers have entered the past couple years as title contenders, only to prematurely lose in the postseason.
