Sixers, Brett Brown Agree To Three-Year Extension

MAY 31: The Sixers have officially announced Brown’s new extension, confirming that it runs through 2021/22.

“Brett has done a terrific job over the past several years building and cultivating a program, but the substantially positive growth in the win column these past two seasons has proven he is the right man to continue leading this team in our quest for an NBA championship,” president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo said in a statement. “I couldn’t be more thrilled for Brett, his family, and the organization to be moving forward for several years to come.”

MAY 29: The Sixers and coach Brett Brown have reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN tweets.

The three-year contract extension will lock up Brown through the 2021/22 season, Derek Bodner of The Athletic tweets.

Brown, 57, has coached the team since the 2013/14 season. He was hired to guide them through the lean years and the front office stuck with him as the Sixers lost 63, 64, 72 and 54 games. He was originally signed to a four-year deal and received a two-year extension in December 2015.

Philadelphia’s commitment to Brown was rewarded when the team finished 52-30 this season and reached the Eastern Conference semifinals before falling to the Celtics.

      Do you just spin a wheel to decide where Lebron is going in your next comment?

        Not hard to predict if you check the websites daily, the Sixers have the best odds to get him this summer and there are always footprints as to where he is going. Ben Simmons mentioning only one way to find out if they can work together.

        • Kenleyfornia74

          But not even a week ago you said he was going to Portland to play with Dame. Then days later you said Houston.

            We don’t know where he will go but my money is on Philly. He would only have to beat Boston to make it back and a team of Embiid,Lebron, and Simmons could be absolutely unstoppable over the next 3-4 years.

              And what about Charlotte? Lebron wants to play with Monk(“the future superstar”, “anyone can see that”) and Walker

      He’s 33,gonna be 34 in December,it might take the 5th year and a sign and trade to get him.

      • Itrainsontuesday

        If the Sixers can unload Bayless and still preserve some cap space for another addition this summer I’m all for it. But the Cavs have nothing to gain by doing that.

        • rgreen

          The Cavalier can play hard ball and use the 5th year to their advantage,but if he leaves,it would definitely benefit them to negotiate rather than lose him for nothing.

        • rgreen

          Could also benefit the 6ers to offer something up,not necessarily for another addition,but to keep Redick.If they can do that and get Belinelli and/or Ilyasova signed with the exception,they could be dangerous with a deep bench.

        • rgreen

          No,any team with the cap space can acquire him without matching salaries,so the 6ers wouldn’t have to gut the team for LeBron.But it would be nice to keep Redick,if they did get him,otherwise they’ll have a lineup of all forwards, and Embiid,without much of a 3pt threat.Dont really know if that helps us get passed Boston.

  1. Good move Philly! Just please don’t sign a big FA this summer don’t risk the future for the now, develop Fultz, Simmons, Saric & Embiid. Maybe get an upgrade on RoCo & try to keep Belinelli, JJ Redick & Ilyasova, & it will get even better next year.

      Risk what? Missing out on the finals. Theres only 2 constants in the NBA, Warriors win the West and LeBron wins the East. Last time I checked, Sixers are in the East.

  2. The risk is that yeah maybe with Lebron Philly can win now, yippie… but that can cost the development or progress of BS & JE. & maybe to win now you risk the future, I do rather take 2-3 to start really contending & then be able to contend for the next 5-7 years, I do prefer to look at the big picture, I think with this core Philly can win a few rings, but winning one sooner might risk a few in the future. To me this is short sighted. I always think patience is soo important, why can’t we enjoy watching the process, having fun, entertaining us & learning to win, maturing, until they are ready to win, don’t force it. Not worthy.

      Win now yippie is the point. There’s no downside. Nobody on the Sixers, or James, is declining.
