The 72 year old coach was the Sixers head coach from 1997-2003 when he went 255-205 (.554) while leading the Sixers to the NBA Finals in 2001 and earning NBA Coach of the Year honors.
The link between Brown and the Nets is strong as well as Nets GM and President Billy King held the same role with the 76ers while Brown was coaching in Philadelphia.
The report states that Brown is likely to accept a position if one is offered but the source does not believe any of the three teams will be offering a job just yet.
