The San Antonio Spurs could be looking to fill another coaching vacancy as early as tomorrow with the Philadelphia 76ers offering their head coaching job to Spurs assistant Brett Brown, according to Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski. The Philadelphia 76ers are engaged in contract negotiations to try and make San Antonio Spurs assistant Brett Brown the franchise's new head coach, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.   Brown has been offered the job, but the sides have to come to an agreement on contract length and compensation, sources said.   Brown is one of four candidates that met with the 76ers this week. Wojnarowski said Brown was expected to be promoted as Spurs coach Gregg Popovich's top assistant with Mike Budenholzer now in Atlanta. The Spurs still have recently-hired Jim Boylen on the coaching staff along with Ime Udoka and Chad Forcier.   While the Spurs may be losing a member of their coaching staff, they may be still looking to fill their 15th and final roster spot ahead of training camp. According to Fox Sports columnist Chris Tomasson, the Spurs may be looking to bring back forward Anthony Tolliver. 3 more teams interested in FA F Anthony Tolliver are Knicks Magic & Spurs, joining Lakers Bobcats Jazz Bulls. Decision hoping made next week — Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) August 9, 2013 Tolliver most recently played for the Atlanta Hawks, finishing the season with averages of 4.1 points and 2.5 rebounds per game. He started his NBA career off with the Spurs in 2008 and played with the summer league squad and was invited to training camp before catching on for a 19-game stint with the Spurs.   His best season was during the 2009-10 season. He played for both Portland and Golden State, but averaged 12.3 points and 7.3 rebounds in 32 minutes per game in his stint with the Warriors.   Tolliver could provide some frontcourt depth. He's a bit of a tweener with the ability to play inside or as a stretch four, but he wouldn't add much size in the post as he measures in at just 6-8. However, Tolliver is familiar with the Spurs system and was a player the coaching staff liked during his time in San Antonio.
