Derrick Coleman has discussed joining Larry Brown’s coaching staff at Southern Methodist University.
“I’ve talked to him,’’ Coleman said. “I’m honored. It’s something I will entertain.’’
Coleman played three seasons under Brown as a member of the Sixers.
“Me and coach Brown have been friends since I played in Philadelphia,’’ Coleman said. “I have the utmost respect for him. It’s not just the game of basketball with coach Brown. It’s the game of life. Of all the coaches in my 16 years in the NBA, coach Brown and Chuck Daly were the best. It wasn’t about basketball. It was about you as a person and your family.’’
