Brown is top candidate for Sixers

Spurs assistant Brett Brown is the preferred candidate to take over for Doug Collins as head coach of the 76ers, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Brown, 52, had been slated to assume the lead assistant role vacated by Mike Budenholzer, who left the Spurs to take the head job in Atlanta. It was erroneously reported on draft day that Brown had taken the Sixers job.

The report cited four other candidates, including holdover assistant coach Michael Curry.

Brown joined the Spurs in 2002 after spending the bulk of his early coaching career in Australia.

He was the head coach of that nationís Olympic team last summer at the London games.

If he gets that job, maybe they will want to swap out some of their guys for our stash of Aussies.

I have to agree with you, Griz. Personally, I don’t know if I would want the job but I guess if you’re Brett Brown, you have to start somewhere. But a professional organization that has been without a head coach to assist or call the shots through the draft, the start of free agency and through the summer leagues would give one pause to wonder the kind of leadership this team has for owners. But it will present a formidable challenge for any rookie head coach.

If Brown does go, that would open another vacancy on Pop’s staff which will have seen both his #1 and #2 assistants hit the road. Rather than allow a rookie assistant to come on board, I would think Pop would look for a person who has some seasoning and stripes for league tenure, guys like George Karl, Avery Johnson or Lionel Hollins readily come to mind. They could walk in and not have to carry the heavy load of calling the shots themselves but still stay active in the game. Just a thought.
