- Philadelphia 76ers want to "unlock" James Harden
A clear "yes" was the answer from Morey when asked whether he could guarantee that Rivers will also be on the Sixers side line in the coming season. On the grounds, the team president took a little out against the Miami Heat at his final press conference after the playoff-out in the second round.
"I think he's a great coach," said Morey, who pushed the rumors about a potential change from Rivers to the Los Angeles Lakers. "I love to work with him. I learn a lot from him. We feel very good with where our trip goes - where we have a good chance of winning the title."
So far, however, the Sixers with MVP candidate Joel Embiid have not got beyond the second playoff round, and has now ended for the fourth time within the past five years. The big destination Championship could not be met even after the trade for James Harden.
"We are really bad. We have big ambitions, just like our fans. That's why we do it all. It's really hard to sit here now. It's still very emotional," said Morey.

"That was the plan since the trade. We will sit down with its representatives and see how that can work."
