(Larry) Brown’s early Sixers teams also struggled, before he turned explosive guard Allen Iverson loose and got the franchise to the 2001 NBA Finals. It’s been pretty much downhill for Philly since, with Brown a fierce critic of the way the organization has been handling things.

“I’m sick of what’s going on there,” Brown said, who’s hopeful that old friend Jerry Colangelo will guide them in the right direction. “You know I care about the Sixers. It’s an unbelievable basketball city and I had a great experience there. I don’t want to get on them when they’re struggling, but they don’t have any veteran leadership. I want to help. I could straighten it out in five minutes. I wish they’d get Allen involved. All those young kids worship him.”

Free-agent guard Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, his agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports, told ESPN.

Korver labored over a decision between the Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers, but his history and relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer played a significant role in his ultimate choice, league sources said.

The 38-year-old Korver played three-plus seasons under Budenholzer in Atlanta and was an All-Star there in 2015.

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, the Bucks will incur a $1.6 million cap hit on Korver’s deal. The Phoenix Suns, who waived Korver earlier this month, will receive a $559,000 set-off on the $3.4 million they owe him.
