How Is Brett Brown Handling Sixers Three Big Men Minutes?

Since Nerlens Noel returned for the 76ers on December 11th the team is 5-7 overall as he is averaging 14.1 Minutes Per Game.  Meanwhile Jahlil Okafor is averaging 17.33 Minutes Per Game but he has not played in three of the last four games as the team is having trouble finding minutes for all three Big Men with Joel Embiid as the starter.

Sixers Head Coach Brett Brown joined The Sports Bash on Tuesday and discussed how he is managing the minutes of the three Sixers NBA Draft lottery draft selections:

“With this (Big Men) situation that we’re in, probably the clearest thing that has come to all of our minds is that cramming three (Centers) into 48 minutes with a healthy Joel Embiid getting 28 of those is very unfair to…Jahlil (Okafor) or Nerlens (Noel)…but that’s the deal so you try to hold it together, make it work, play them as best you can and find a way to move the program forward and steal some wins.  There’s no real, sort of, book that tells you how to do all that.”

Checkout what Brown had to say about Joel Embiid’s play, Ben Simmons recovery, and the Sixers improved defensive play
