LloydPierceAccording to The Philadelphia Inquirer,  Lloyd Pierce has accepted an assistant coach spot with the Philadelphia 76ers.

After spending the last two years as the Memphis Grizzlies player-development coach, Pierce has accepted the same role with the Sixers in the upcoming season. Pierce had been rumored as a potential candidate for the 76ers head coach position that, as we already know, went to Brett Brown.

Prior to his role in Memphis, Pierce also previously worked for the Golden State Warriors for one year as an assistant and Cleveland Cavaliers as a player-development coach for three years. He is considered around the league as an assistant on the rise and should fit well in Browns system.

Brown is in the process of assembling his staff after dismantling all the current assistants from the prior regime. Lloyd is Brown’s first member of his new entourage.
