WASHINGTON – Philadelphia coach Brett Brown has received a two-year contract extension that will keep him with the struggling Sixers through the 2018-19 NBA season, the team confirmed on Friday.

Brown is just 38-149 in two-plus seasons with the rebuilding organization, which owned an NBA-worst 1-22 record going into Friday’s game against Detroit.

”Brett has been everything we anticipated — and more — both as a basketball coach and a partner in building this program,” general manager Sam Hinkie said in a statement.

”His tireless work ethic, his daily desire to consistently improve, and his resiliency line up with our core values as an organization. It was not difficult to come to the decision to formally say we want to work with Brett Brown even longer.”

The extension comes in the same week that the 76ers hired Jerry Colangelo, the chairman of USA Basketball and a longtime executive with the Phoenix Suns, as chairman of basketball operations and special adviser to the owner. (AFP)
