Report: Larry Brown doesn’t want to coach, he wants to run an NBA team

Larry Brown

Yes, the Philadelphia 76ers did reach out and talk to Larry Brown.

But it’s not like that, it wasn’t what you think, reports This simply may have been a courtesy call.

Besides, much like Phil Jackson, if Brown returns to the NBA he doesn’t want to do the grind of coaching, he wants to have the power to run a team.

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.

Everybody wants to be Pat Riley, I guess.

The odds of anything happening with Brown are about as good as the Clippers hiring Vinny Del Negro back. Brown will be on the bench at SMU again next season.

    Report: Larry Brown wants to be the first to coach every NBA team. In the same season.

      Larry Brown is crazy, look at what he did to the Knickerbockers.

    I believe the words “into the ground” were left off the end of the headline.

    In that case, just stay at SMU.

      I wonder where the bobcats would be now if weren’t for Larry Brown doing things such as having Jordan choose DJ over Brook Lopez.
