The Philadephia 76ers parted ways with Michael Curry, Aaron McKie and Jeff Capel on Friday as Brett Brown will get to start fresh with a new staff.

"I'm doing that for obvious reasons," said Brown, who was hired Monday. "I want to hire my own staff and have a clean start going in that direction. ... I feel like it's important that I come in with my own staff and start fresh and try to rebuild."

Brown declined to disclose his assistant coaching candidates, though he hopes to have those positions filled by early September.
