Dan Burke Rumors

Last season, then-Indiana Pacers assistant coach Dan Burke wasn’t much of a fan of Philadelphia 76ers star Joel Embiid. These days, however, Embiid said things are a lot different, for one big reason: They’re now on the same team. “It’s easy to say stuff when you’re playing against somebody,” Embiid said with a smile after Thursday’s practice. “I’m sure no one likes to play against me, because all I do is I either score or get fouled. I know the rules and stuff, I just take advantage, I play my game based on that. If someone wants to reach, I’m going to get fouled and I’m going to get to the free throw line.
The Philadelphia 76ers announced today that Dave Joerger, Sam Cassell and Dan Burke have joined Doc Rivers’ bench as assistant coaches. Popeye Jones, Eric Hughes and Brian Adams have also been named to Rivers’ coaching staff, while Pete Dominguez has been added as coaching associate. Additionally, Todor Pandov has taken on the role of assistant coach/performance director.
