Brett Brown Hired as Head Coach

It’s been 117 days since the 76ers last had a head coach but according to SI’s Ian Thomsen, the Philadelphia 76ers and Brett Brown have reached a four year, fully guaranteed deal to make Brown the new 76ers head coach. Brown has been with the Spurs since 2002, starting off as a player development director but then moved to an assistant coach 7 years ago.

Brown has been linked to the Sixers ever since draft night when a pre-mature rumored deal leaked out. Sam Hinkie told the press it was not true and the Sixers went on to interview other coaches. Nobody really knows why this process took so long but the wait is over.

The 76ers will likely be making some changes over the next few weeks now that they have a coach. Trades, free agent acquisitions and probably some coaching changes will all ensue now.

As of right now, no date has been decided for when a press conference will take place, but assume it will be in the next couple days.
