PHILADELPHIA– In the midst of the aftermath of a painful Game Seven loss, questions about the job security of Sixers’ head coach Brett Brown arose.

Now, the team has quickly dashed those concerns, confirming to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnaroski that Brown will return as the team’s lead man next season:

Brown and GM Elton Brand are expected to meet with the media on Monday.

In six seasons with the team, Brown has a 178-314 record, which is largely skewed by what has been donned “The Process”, in which the Sixers were a lousy team for several seasons in order to accrue top draft picks and cap space.

However, in the past two seasons, Brown has led the team to back-to-back 50 win seasons, finally turning the corner with a young nucleus.

It is a pivotal off season for the Sixers, as the team will see over half the roster become free agents, including starters Gs Jimmy Butler & J.J. Redick and F Tobias Harris.
