Report: Sixers to Hire Michael Curry or Brett Brown
According to a series of tweets from Marc Stein, the Sixers have narrowed their coaching search down to two candidates.
"Coaching insiders continue to insist Philly job is going to Michael Curry or Brett Brown, tweeted Stein."
Curry, has remained on the Sixers staff after serving as assistant coach under Doug Collins the last three seasons.
He has one year remaining on his Sixers contract.
Brown, most recently served as an assistant under Spurs heads coach Gregg Popovich, joining the bench before the 2006-07 season.
Before joining Popovich, Brown spent 14 season coaching in Australia in the Australian National Basketball League. He led their national team to a seventh place finish at the 2013 Summer Olympic Games in London.
Brown was reportedly set to be named Sixers head coach the day of the NBA Draft, according to the New York Daily News.
Sixers GM Sam Hinkie strongly denied that report, however.
The Stein tweets also cite sources claiming Brown will be the last candidate interviewed by the Sixers in their search.
Other candidates interviewed by Sam Hinkie include: Rockets assistants Kelvin Sampson and Chris Finch, Hawks assistant Quinn Snyder and Heat assistant David Fizdale among others.
The Sixers are the last remaining NBA team without a head coach.
