The Sixers have reportedly offered their head coaching job to Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown. The two sides are working on details of a contract.
Brown, 52, has been an assistant coach on Greg Popovich's staff in San Antonio since 2002. He previously coached for 14 years, nine as a head coach, in the Australian National Basketball League and coached the Australian Olympic team. Brown interviewed with the Denver Nuggets before the team offer their head coaching job to Brian Shaw. It was reported the night of the draft that the Sixers had hired Brown but general manager Sam Hinkie quickly rebuffed the report.
I love the move and he was my first choice for a while now. Working under Popovich is a great attribute and hopefully he can be successful with a very young 76ers squad.
