Brett Brown has his best season as the Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach this past season. Their management has decided to keep the bench boss around for several more seasons.
Brown agreed to a three-year extension with the franchise on Tuesday night. An official announcement by the team is expected on Wednesday.
Brown has spent the last five seasons as the 76ers Head Coach after being a long-time San Antonio Spurs assistant coach. He had just 75 wins in his first four seasons, as the team decided to tank multiple seasons under former executive Sam Hinkie.
However, this past season with the emergence of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, as stars, the team went 52-30 during the regular season. Also, for the first time, he guided the team to the postseason.
Brown helped coach his team to a first round win over the Miami Heat, as they won 4-1. Then, in the second round, despite the Boston Celtics being without their two best players, Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward, the team could only muster one win, as they lost 4-1 in the second round.
With a healthy Markelle Fultz — and along with the strong possibility of adding LeBron James in the offseason — the 76ers have a very bright future barring any injuries. They are expected to be a top team in the Eastern Conference for years to come.
