Re: 76ers coaching favorite is Brett Brown
Brown played for Pitino at Boston University from 1980 to '83 and was the team's most valuable player in 1981. In high school, Brown played at South Portland (Maine) for his father, a New England Basketball Hall of Fame coach. Bob Brown went on to become an assistant coach at Boston University while Brett Brown played there.
Brown's seasons as director of player development in San Antonio would be a huge benefit for a youthful Sixers squad. While they have huge upsides, rookies Michael Carter-Williams and Noel also have huge bust potential. So the next coach must be a good developer of talent.
Brown had a hand in the development of NBA all-star point guard Tony Parker, whose scoring average went from 9.2 to 15.5 during the first season he worked with Brown.
