Report: 76ers agree to three-year extension with Brett Brown

Nelson Chenault - USA Today

The Process has entered progress and Brett Brown will be in Philly for it at least three more seasons.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Philadelphia 76ers and Brown have come to terms on a three-year contract extension. Brown had one year left on his deal.

The contract keeps him in the City of Brotherly Love until the 2021-22 season, providing him the security and stability he needs as he continues to lead a young squad.

Brown, who has a career mark of 127-283, guided the Sixers to a 52-30 regular season record in his fifth year at the helm. This came after the team went 10-72 just two years ago. Philly defeated the Miami Heat in five games during the first round of the playoffs, but fell to the second-seeded Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals in five.

It was still a hell of the ride for the upstart Sixers.

With Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid entering into their second and third seasons, the future is obviously bright for a team when that light could not be seen at the end of the tunnel five years ago. The Sixers failed to win 20 games during Brown’s first three years and put up just 28 during the 2016-17 campaign.

Trust the Progress.
