Last night at Wachovia Center:


Ever since former 76ers coach Larry Brown rejoined the team in an advisory role, speculation has been that Brown eventually will replace Maurice Cheeks on the Philadelphia sideline.

Don’t bet on it, at least according 76ers president Billy King, who addressed that issue briefly as he watched the 76ers warm up before their game with Washington.

“I’ve been upfront, direct and honest with Mo from Day One about this,” King said. “I talked to him about it, and Larry has talked to him about it. Mo’s picked his brain a few times since he’s come back as a matter of fact. Mo is our coach.”

Brown coached the 76ers from 1997 to 2003. The team had its best year under Brown in 2001, when it reached the NBA Finals for the first time since 1983. The 76ers lost 4-1 to the Los Angeles Lakers.


12-24 Record for the 76ers since Allen Iverson played his last game with the team Dec. 6.
