PBT Podcast: Sixers’ coach Brett Brown talks Joel Embiid, building a culture, job security

Philadelphia’s ownership already was frustrated enough with the pace of its bad-to-get-good rebuild that the plan’s architect, Sam Hinkie, was pushed out the door and the reins of power were handed to the more conventional father/son team of Jerry Colangelo and Bryan Colangelo.

Does that mean coach Brett Brown is next on the chopping block?

Brown doesn’t feel that pressure.

In this podcast, Brown joins Kurt Helin of NBC to talk about taking the team to the Pentagon this week, about trying to build a team culture that can be sustained, how Joel Embiid and Dario Saric fit into that, and how Brown’s job security tie into all of that. It’s a good look into the efforts to turn the Sixers around.
