3:55pm: Marc Stein of ESPN.com hears talk indicating that the Spurs are bracing for Brown to take the Sixers job sooner or later (Twitter link).
9:04am: The Sixers coaching search is now at 110 days and ticking, and even though there is a very clear frontrunner for the position, it's still impossible to say when a hire could be made. Spurs assistant Brett Brown has been offered the job, but there is no time frame for the team to expect an answer, a source tells Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News.
Even if Brown decides to take the position today, there likely won't be an announcement until Monday, though it would make sense for them to wait until the first business day of the week to make everything public. Meanwhile, people close to Brown are urging him to say no to GM Sam Hinkie & Co. since the 76ers project to be one of the worst teams in the NBA this season. Waiting for another head coaching job could be a risky proposition, but Spurs assistants are highly coveted throughout the league and it's likely that he would be among the top available coaching candidates again next summer.
