PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press the Philadelphia 76ers have hired San Antonio assistant Brett Brown to be their coach, ending a four-month search to replace Doug Collins.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity Monday because the move has not been officially announced.

Collins resigned in April after the Sixers went 34-48. New general manager Sam Hinkie took quite a while looking for a replacement before choosing Brown, who was part of three NBA title teams with San Antonio.
