Brett Brown began his head coaching journey at the beginning of the most radical rebuild in modern sports history. Sam Hinkie, calculator in hand and his manifesto/resignation still years away, tore asunder the very foundation of the Philadelphia 76ers. It was the beginning of a long and arduous process.
It was Brown who helped develop a slew of second-round picks and undrafted free agents into viable NBA talents. Robert Covington, Jerami Grant, and T.J. McConnell all owe a great deal to Brown’s presence on the bench and in the practice facility.
