Sixers head coach Brett Brown says a “high-level free agent is required” this summer.

Brown believes the young, ascendant Sixers have what it takes to attract a marquee name in the offseason.
“I think a high-level free agent is required,” Brown said. “I feel like we have the ability to attract one.”
The coach cited the Sixers’ uptempo style of play as exciting and the modern-day way to play. He talked about the team’s culture and that organization personnel “treat people well here.” And Brown mentioned the city of Philadelphia and its “sport-mad people.”
“When you walk through this door [of the practice facility] and say, ‘I can come to work here everyday,’ that’s a pretty good package,” he said. “At some point when the time is right, I think we need help.”
Philadelphia won 52 regular season games, and after bowing out in the second round of the playoffs, Brown concedes that his team needs “help to win a championship.”
“At some point, when the time is right, I think we need help to win a championship,” the coach told reporters at his season-ending news conference. “If that’s the goal — and for me and us it is — then that’s the answer I give.”
