08:21 AM ET 08.10 | The Philadelphia 76ers are engaged in contract negotiations to try and make San Antonio Spurs assistant Brett Brown the franchise's new head coach, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Brown has been offered the job, but the sides have to come to an agreement on contract length and compensation, sources said. For the past seven years, Brown has been a bench assistant coach under Gregg Popovich with San Antonio. He joined the Spurs for a second time in 2001.

Sixers next few seasons will be lottery bound. A head coaching career set up for failure.

He will have an out clause if Pops retires.

QUOTE(#4):

he was told by several of his peers not to take the job cause it will involve multiple 60 loss seasons.I get wanting to get your fist HC job.....but as a spur assistant, he should wait for something to come up that has at least a shot at being successfulthis team is going to be REAL bad, for a while.

He wants to kill his career real fast. He is dead man walking. The team is set up to go after Wiggins or Marcus Smart...

Certainly not the best opportunity, but I think BB will take it.

Bad for the Spurs though, as they already lost Budenholzer when he took the HC spot in Atlanta. Possibly, PJ Carlisemo will return as lead assistant.
