Brett Brown and Bryan Colangelo spoke to the assembled media today. Kevin will have more on both later, but for now it’s worth calling out Brown’s response to a question Kevin asked regarding fans who want to win organically and those who want the Sixers to make a big splash in free agency:
“If that portion of the fan base [who accepted the process] is still prepared to take this notion and that’s gonna equal a championship, you know, it’s noble, but I don’t agree with it. I think that a other high-level free agent is required. I feel like we have the ability to attract one. If I were a free agent, and of course I’m biased [I’d want to come here]. And so at some point, when the time is right, I think we need help to win a championship.”
So, count Brett Brown as being firmly on record that he wants to go out and get a big-name free agent. And they say we don’t do real journalism around here.
