Well, that didn't take long.
Sixers president Bryan Colangelo said during the team's exit interviews earlier this month that he planned to work out a new contract for head coach Brett Brown, and it appears the deal is done. Brown and the Sixers have reached an agreement on a three-year extension, a source confirmed to NBC Sports Philadelphia Sixers insider Jessica Camerato. Brown, who was set to enter the final year of his contract, would now be signed through 2022.
The deal was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.
After suffering through a 75-253 record during the first four years of the Sixers' massive rebuild, Brown finally showed what he could do with the right pieces in place this past season. He guided the Sixers to a 52-30 record, the third seed in the Eastern Conference and the franchise's first playoff series win in six seasons.
