Adams' experience with Rivers goes back to Rivers' tenure with the Boston Celtics, when he worked on Boston's video staff. Following assistant coaching gigs with Harvard and Marist College, he was the Clippers' video scouting director before his move to the G League.
"Brian has an impressive passion for basketball and teaching," Clippers president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank said of Adams in August 2018. "He is a tireless worker who is effective at communicating with our players and genuinely cares about their growth and development."
The Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey and Marc Narducci reported Wednesday that Sam Cassell was following Rivers from Los Angeles to join Philadelphia's staff. Tim Bontemps of ESPN also reported the Sixers are adding Dan Burke, who was an assistant for the Indiana Pacers. The team had previously added former Memphis Grizzlies and Sacramento Kings head coach Dave Joerger, per Wojnarowski.
