#Brett Brown

Brett Brown and the 76ers have reached a three-year contract extension, according to ESPN.

Brown coached the 76ers to their first 50-win season since 2000-01 and helped them win the most games in a season (52) since 1989-90 when they won 53.

The 57-year-old has been coaching the team since 2013 and has a 127-283 record in his time at the helm. However, he was able to help the team to its first Eastern Conference semifinals berth since 2011-12.

Brown had one year left on his contract, so the extension will run to the end of the 2021-22 season. He originally signed a two-year extension in 2015.
