76ers coach Brown will return next season

Brett Brown will return as the Philadelphia 76ers coach for the 2019-20 season, managing partner Josh Harris told ESPN on Monday night.

There had been some uncertainty about Brown returning for his seventh season, but Harris eliminated that doubt in a lengthy meeting with Brown and general manager Elton Brand on Monday that mostly centered on discussions about the franchise's plans for the offseason.

Brown has largely remained a popular figure in the Philadelphia sporting landscape and within the Sixers organization.

The Sixers were eliminated for a second straight year in the Eastern Conference Finals, losing in a Game 7 to the Toronto Raptors.
