Joel Embid defended coach Brown on Monday saying that the idea of firing Brown was “bull—-,” He’s done a fantastic job. He’s been there through everything”.
The Sixers have a lot of decisions to make this offseason. Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris, and J.J Redick all are free agents. Butler will probably be seeking a max contract and Harris closely to the Max. So it will be interesting what they will do, with Ben Simmions a year away from is Max Contract.
Brown’s record with the Sixers is 178-314 over six seasons with the team. He is under contract through 2021- 22 season. I think its good Brown is coming back for the Sixers that was a tough way to lose a series.
