Standart Cheap Mark Andrews Jersey

The Philadelphia 76ers will continue to put their trust in coach Brett Brown.

Brown Adidas Corey Perry Jersey , who took the 76ers from 10 wins to the third seed in the Eastern Conference in just two seasons, has agreed to a three-year contract extension that runs through the 2021-2022 season.

A person familiar with the situation confirmed the deal to The Associated Press. The person spoke Tuesday night on condition of anonymity because the contract has not been officially announced.

Brown had one year left on his contract. The extension is a sign the franchise believes he’s still the right coach to lead the Sixers into Eastern Conference contention.

The Sixers won 52 games this season and beat Miami in the first round of the playoffs before they were eliminated in the conference semis by Boston.

Under Brown’s watch, Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have blossomed into two of the top young players in the league. Brown was hired as the Sixers were about to undergo their rebuilding process that became known as ”The Process.” The 76ers won 19, 18 and 10 games in each of Brown’s first three seasons. The Sixers won 28 games in 2016-17 and made the first playoffs this season for the first time since 2012.

Even with two 26-game losing streaks on his resume, the front office has never wavered in its feeling that Brown is the right coach for a franchise that last won a championship in 1983. Brown is 127-283 (.310) with one winning record in five seasons.

Team president Bryan Colangelo said days after the Sixers were eliminated he planned to offer Brown an extension.

”I don’t think it’s the healthiest of situations for coaches to go into a season with one year remaining on their contracts. It impacts so many aspects of what you’re doing,” he said.

Brown was part of three NBA title teams with San Antonio as an assistant and won another with the Spurs when he served in the basketball operations department in 1998-99. He left after that season to become the head coach of the Sydney Kings of the Australian National Basketball League, but rejoined the Spurs in 2002 as the team’s assistant coach/director of player development and was moved to the bench as an assistant under Gregg Popovich in 2006.

He signed a four-year deal for his NBA first head coaching job in 2013 with the understanding the Sixers were trying to rebuild. But he would later admit he had no idea the 76ers would struggle so badly four years into a tenure filled of coaching developmental league castoffs and 10-day contract players for a shot at building a winner through lottery draft picks.

”To coach gypsies or to have to coach a revolving door is not what I am looking for,” he said in 2015.

But help was soon on the way.

Embiid was named All-NBA second team Cheap Mark Andrews Jersey , Simmons is a leading contender for NBA rookie of the year and the Sixers still believe they can salvage something out of Markelle Fultz. Fultz was the No. 1 pick of the 2016 draft but was sidelined most of the year with injuries and hardly played in the postseason. The Sixers are at least $25 million under the salary cap headed into the offseason and Brown said the Sixers need to be players in the free-agent market if they want to take the next step.

”I think that a high-level free agent is required,” he said earlier this month. ”I feel like we have the ability to attract one. At some point, when the time is right, I think we need help to win a championship.”

And the 76ers believe Brown is the right coach on the bench who can help bring them one.

Aaron Rodgers is losing his most prolific receiver but might be getting an upgrade at tight end.

The Green Bay Packers released veteran Jordy Nelson, the third-leading receiver in franchise history and one of Rodgers’ top targets.

The Packers announced the move Tuesday, a day before teams can begin to sign free agents.

Nelson had 550 receptions and 69 touchdown catches in 10 seasons in Green Bay. But his production declined last season with Rodgers sidelined much of the year by a collarbone injury.

First-year general manager Brian Gutekunst called Nelson ”one of the great Packers who played here. He’s everything you want a pro to be – and he’ll be missed.

”I think Jordy is a really good player, and you certainly don’t want to let him walk out the door. But this is a big puzzle, and there’s kind of limitations. You can’t keep everybody. As we went through this Cheap Baker Mayfield Jersey , we thought this was in our best interest. The best interest for our team moving forward.”

Asked if the Packers offered Nelson the opportunity to come back in 2018 at a reduced salary, Gutekunst said, ”There were a lot of discussions that went on. In fairness to him, we won’t get into those kind of discussions.”

Nelson, who turns 33 in May, was scheduled to earn $10.25 million this season and carry a salary-cap number of $12.52 million.

In a post on his Instagram account, Rodgers wrote that it was ”hard to find the right words today to express what `87′ means to me. No teammate exemplified what it means to be a Packer quite like him. From living in (Green Bay) full time, his incredible contributions to the city Authentic JK Scott Jersey Elite Womens Youth Big&Tall Nike Green Bay Packers NFL Shop Free Shipping , state, and region, to his consistent, reliable play on the field. Definitely a sad day and the toughest part of this business.”

Asked if he talked to Rodgers about the decision, Gutekunst replied, ”Talked to Aaron afterward. Had a conversation with him afterward, but not before.”

Nelson had 53 catches for 482 yards and six scores in 2017, a year after winning Comeback Player of the Year honors. He had 97 catches on 1 Adidas Jamie Benn Jersey ,257 yards and a league-best 14 touchdowns in 2016, rebounding from a knee injury that sidelined him the previous season.

Rodgers and Nelson had a chemistry built over their time as two of the longest-tenured Packers.

Nelson’s release figures to foreshadow more moves for the Packers, who could use an upgrade at tight end. Jimmy Graham is one of the top free agents available on the market.

The Packers have Lance Kendricks at tight end, but Richard Rodgers is due to become a free agent.

Davante Adams, who has emerged as the No. 1 receiver, signed a contract extension last year. Randall Cobb remains on the roster, while Ty Montgomery might be used in more of a hybrid role after playing running back exclusively in an injury-plagued 2017 season.
