However, the manner in which he conducted himself through these hard times was exceptional, and is a huge reason as to why this much-deserved extension has been awarded to the 57-year-old Brown.

Brown just completed his fifth season on the job for the Sixers.

Brown had just one year left on his deal from his previous extension, and the Sixers front office chose to add another three years to his contract, giving him the security and peace of mind he needs, and very much deserves, to coach this young squad. The organization stuck with him after the team won just 47 games in Brown's first three seasons, including a 10-72 campaign in 2015-16.

The end result this season saw the Sixers finish in third place in the Eastern Conference standings with a 52-30 record.
