Brett Brown Rumors
The complaint claims that the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers had interest in signing Noel as a free agent in recent offseasons. But Noel, allegedly, was unaware of the interest because Paul didn’t return calls from those teams. The suit alleges that former Sixers coach Brett Brown informed Noel of Philadelphia’s interest. If Brown agrees to provide his version of events on the record, it could have a significant impact on the case.
The lawsuit claims Paul never informed Noel of Philadelphia’s interest in bringing him back—that he later only heard the intel from coach Brett Brown, who said Philly’s front office was unable to reach Paul. The 76ers, and the team’s coaching staff in particular, were indeed interested in Noel before Philadelphia ultimately shifted its pricier sights onto Al Horford, sources confirmed to B/R.

Jay King: Ime Udoka will indeed be the next coach of the Celtics, source confirms. The team liked his combination of NBA playing experience and coaching experience under Gregg Popovich, Brett Brown and Steve Nash.
In San Antonio, Duncan continued refining the bank shot. “My office was always close to the court during my 12 years in San Antonio,” former Sixers head coach and longtime Spurs assistant Brett Brown wrote in a text message. “I was in the practice facility at many different hours during this period. Often either early in the morning, or very late at night, you could hear somebody in the gym with the shooting gun.” Brown arrived in San Antonio in 2002. The next season, the first for which the NBA has data available on attempts off the glass (defined as bank jump shots and bank hook shots, but not layups), Duncan canned 70.3 percent of the 111 bank shots he attempted, a ridiculous rate. Between 2003 and 2016, he’d connect on bank shots 60.4 percent of the time.
