Despite Philadelphia's relegation in the Eastern Conference playoff semifinals (4-2 against Miami), Doc Rivers is expected to continue to gain the trust and coach the team next season as well, at least according to general manager Daryl Murray.
"I think Doc is a great coach. I love working with him," Murray said last night after, at the end of the Siskers season, "I feel like I'm learning from him, along with Elton Brand we are a great team, and we feel very good about the direction we are going. There is a very good chance of winning a championship. "

Meanwhile, the club received harsh news when they learned that 34-year-old Danny Green had torn a ligament in his knee - and will have to miss most of next season as well.
The guard, who was injured as a result of a collision with Joel Ambide in Game No. 6, will now need a lengthy recovery period when at the same time the Sixers will be able to give up his unsecured contract and part with him as early as next month.
