One would assume that Brett Brown would fill his remaining assistant-coaching vacancy with someone with NBA head-coaching experience.
But the 76ers rookie head coach said that’s not necessarily the case.
“I don’t feel with this team that it’s mandatory that I have to surround myself with perspective or wisdom or, you know, an Owl that’s been there, done that,” Brown said. “I feel that this year’s team is about development. And I feel like it’s about ... teaching, relationships and energy more than NBA wisdom.”
The former San Antonio Spurs assistant said he will seek outside wisdom and counsel from his mentors.
