Philadelphia 76ers Hire Brett Brown As Head Coach

Clearly trading his star point guard for Nerlens Noel and a likely 2014 lottery pick wasn’t enough for Sam Hinkie. Now, on the night of the draft, the news has broken that Brett Brown will be the next head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers.

According to a report from the New York Daily News, the former assistant coach of the Western Conference Champion San Antonio Spurs had accepted the 76ers’ coaching vacancy. Before being a Spurs assistant, he was the head of their player development for five years, grooming players like Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Manu Ginobili.

It is clear now that the Sixers are in rebuilding mode, if blowing their team up wasn’t clue enough. With three-to-four lottery-level talents coming in between this draft and next year’s, the Sixers need someone who can develop that talent, and Brown is that guy. Personally a huge fan of this hiring, but only time will tell.
