It's been three weeks since Draft night when a report broke during the draft stating San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown was about to be hired by the Philadelphia 76ers as their new head coach.
Later that Thursday evening, Spurs General Manager R.C. Buford dispelled the rumor and said no such deal had been done. Since those three weeks, there have been multiple reports of the 76ers speaking with other assistant coaches around the NBA as they are still the only franchise without a head coach.

Although Doc Rivers forever cemented his place in Celtics history coaching the team to its 2008 championship, it's easy to forget he suffered his share of devastating losses, too.
