There are a ton of NBA trade rumors floating around, but San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown may be the most popular name on the market  as both the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets have shown some interest in his services.

Brown has been in line for a promotion for quite some time now and may be in a position to choose between the 76ers and Nuggets if everything falls into place.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, the 76ers have received permission from the Spurs to interview Brown about their vacant coaching position:

…the Philadelphia 76ers have sought and received permission to discuss their coaching opening with Brown, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

As we have hinted, the 76ers are far from the only team that has made it known Brown’s services are wanted. Wojnarowski says Brown is one of a few candidates the team may choose for its open coaching spot:

The Nuggets are expected to offer their coaching job before Thursday’s NBA draft, choosing from a pool that includes Brown,Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw, former Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins, former Los Angeles Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro and Nuggets assistant Melvin Hunt.

Consider the race for Brown’s coaching services to be on full blast. Brown may be your next coach of either the 76ers or Nuggets.
