76ers Head Coach Brett Brown Gets 2-Year Contract Extension

Greg M. Cooper/USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown has agreed to a two-year contract extension, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski. The Sixers held a press conference on Friday evening to announce the deal, which will run through the 2018-19 season.

Brown has had little success as a coach since he took over before the 2013-14 season. In two-plus seasons, his coaching record stands at 38-149.

Of course, that poor record isn’t all Brown’s fault. He took over when general manager Sam Hinkie began his ambitious rebuild, which involved completely tearing down the roster and building the team from scratch.

That rebuild has gone a bit slower than expected thanks to a variety of factors, and the Sixers currently sit at a dreadful 1-22 this season. That’s prompted Philadelphia ownership to hire Jerry Colangelo to help out in the front office.

The good news is the Sixers are set to take a major step forward next offseason thanks to all the assets Hinkie has accumulated, and they’ll also have plenty of cap space as well. Philadelphia is doing Brown a solid by giving him a chance to coach the team when there’s more NBA talent on the roster and not just a bunch of guys fighting to stay in the league.
