Brett Brown Rumors

“He’s one of the elite centers in this league because he’s got a disposition of a killer,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said. “He runs like a wing. He’s a defensive rebounder. He runs like a wing, and he’s what, 7-foot, 200-whatever pounds? “And he does have a mentality that he does want to get under his skin. So there’s a discipline that you have to show when you play somebody like that.”
“It’s not doom and gloom,” Brett Brown told Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer. “Ben (Simmons) is coming back in January. We are still trying to find information on Jerryd [Bayless]. Jahlil [Okafor] is still trying to touch the court in his first preseason game.” Simmons had surgery to repair the fracture on October 4th. January 3rd would be 13 weeks post-surgery, which is close to the 10-12 week timeline orthopedic surgeon Daniel Cuttica explained as a typical recovery timeline for Simmons’ injury.
