With the need of head coaches from multiple NBA teams, the Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Clippers asked Larry Brown, who last coached the Charlotte Bobcats in 2008-2010, on different occasions if he was interested in a coaching position. However Brown, just like Phil Jackson, said he doesn’t want to coach but run an NBA team.
According to CSNPhilly.com:
The source wasn’t certain how serious the interest is, or if teams are just paying respect to the Hall of Famer. The source said Brown is happy with his head coaching position at SMU but would be interested in possibly running an NBA franchise, calling the Sixers a natural fit because of Brown’s Philly connections.
It’ll be interesting to see if Brown returns to the NBA as a coach or as a general manager however the odds of him returning to the NBA are as good as the Los Angeles Clippers re-hiring Vinny Del Negro. It won’t happen. Brown will be coaching SMU once again next season.
