The Sixers had become enamored with the idea of keeping the chemistry of this front-office group together, and probed outside candidates about how they thought that dynamic would work with a new leader. The Sixers won 52 games and advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals a year ago, returning a core that includes All-Star Joel Embiid and rookie of the year Ben Simmons. The Sixers are determined to use max salary space for a star complement to those young players next summer in free agency.

Simmons attempted just one 3 in the postseason, and he’ll have to establish some sort of long-range jumper to become a serious all-around threat in the NBA. “His jump shot’s not going to define him,” Brown said. “At some point, it will sure help. But I have aspirations, ambitions for him where I want him to feature on an all-defensive team. I personally want to post him more. I look forward to using him as a screener and giving Markelle the ball and let him roll out of it, that Blake Griffin-sort of half-roll and go to dunk.”
