Rounding out an incredibly busy week in Sixersland, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported today that Doc Rivers is set to make another addition to his first coaching staff in Philly:

Adams is another former Rivers cohort to join the staff, and the sixth reported assistant coach for this upcoming season.

This slew of Wednesday reports follows the previous leak that former Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings Head Coach Dave Joerger would also slot in as an assistant.

With Joerger, Cassell, Burke, Dominguez, Hughes and Adams in tow, Doc seems to have crafted himself an extremely accomplished and diverse mix of coaches for his first go-round with the Sixers.

This is a benefit of hiring a coach as ingrained in the NBA and as secure in his standing with the organization as Rivers — unlike younger or less experienced head coaches who may be quick to look over their shoulder with a Joerger or Cassell lying in wait, Rivers could simply go out and hire the best coaches possible for his staff without fear of a potential mutiny.

If you’re eager to learn more about Brian Adams (and who isn’t?), he appears to be on Twitter and Instagram @BrianAdams13.

And here is a longform interview with Adams from last year, if you just can not get enough Brian Adams content on this snowy Friday:

The Sixers are hiring Daryl Morey. What a world!
