Danny Green makes the case for Monty Williams to be new Sixers coach
The Philadelphia 76ers are still in the process of looking for a new coach after moving on from Doc Rivers after three seasons at the helm. The Sixers won a lot of games under Rivers, 154 of them, but they were unable to get past the semifinals.
There is no shortage of options to replace Rivers. The Sixers have conducted interviews with former Toronto Raptors coach Nick Nurse as well as former Los Angeles Lakers coach Frank Vogel. Both candidates have a title on their resume and they have had a ton of success during their time in the league.
Former Sixers guard Danny Green hopped on his podcast “Inside the Green Room” and he was asked to come up with the right guy for each current coach opening. For Philadelphia, he chose Monty Williams:
I think Monty can coach Joel (Embiid). We don’t know what’s gonna happen with James Harden. So I think he’s a good fit and a positive attitude. Teach them how to play the right way, unselfish basketball.
Williams was an assistant with the Sixers in the 2018-19 season so he has some experience with Embiid. It will be interesting to see which route Philadelphia goes as they continue to make strides forward on its title quest.
