The deal was first reported by Yahoo sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
Philadelphia added Hall of Famer Jerry Colangelo as the team’s special advisor to the managing general partner and chairman of basketball operations on Monday. Colangelo hinted at a contract extension for Brown during his introduction by the team.
Brown is the eighth coach to head the Sixers since Larry Brown left the team in 2003. He signed a four-year deal in the summer of 2013. The new deal is expected to keep him through the 2018–2019 season.
Before joining the Sixers, Brown was part of four championship titles with the San Antonio Spurs.
The Sixers are 1–22 heading into Friday night. In his first two seasons with Philadelphia, Brown compiled a 37–127 record.
