The Philadelphia 76ers are searching their next head coach with several names and possibilities being in the mix. One of the coaches that the Sixers are considering for the job is the Warriors’ assistant Mike Brown, per Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The 50-year-old was named NBA Coach of the Year in 2008-09 with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He coached the Los Angeles Lakers in 2011-12 and was fired five games into the 2012-13 season. Brown was re-hired by the Cavs in April 2013, but fired a little over one year later.
Brown, a member of the coaching staff in the Golden State Warriors championship team the last four seasons, could be available for many teams with the Brooklyn Nets job being the main target for several high-profile candidates.
Along with the Sixers, who parted ways with Brett Brown after seven seasons, the Pelicans, the Pacers and the Nets are also in search for a new head coach.
