PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly offered Brett Brown their long-vacant coaching job.
Brown, an assistant with the San Antonio Spurs, was in final discussions Friday night with Philadelphia regarding terms and finances, according to Yahoo! Sports. The Sixers have been searching for a coach since Doug Collins resigned in April.
Brown helped lead the Spurs to the NBA Finals last season, where they lost to the Miami Heat in seven games. He, along with new general manager Sam Hinkie, would be at the head of a major rebuilding project with the 76ers, who failed to make the postseason last year and finished in last place in the Atlantic Division, a year after advancing to the Eastern Conference semifinals.
