Larry Brown to rescue Sixers?

New York Post NBA columnist Peter Vecsey reported this morning that Charlotte Bobcats coach Larry Brown is already well on his way back to running the Philadelphia 76ers once the Bobcats' season ends.

Vecsey is well known these days for throwing things against the wall and hoping they stick but this makes sense.

A source close to the Sixers has already confirmed Eddie Jordan will be fired quickly after the season concludes on Wednesday, and Jordan's backdoor overtures to Rutgers indicates he knows he's out.

Meanwhile, Brown's wife and two teenage children still live in suburban Philadelphia. The Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell also recently asked Bobcats owner Michael Jordan about Brown's situation and Jordan said he wouldn't stand in Brown's way if he felt the need to return to Philadelphia for family reasons.

Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowki says Brown is basically out of Charlotte and his future largely depends on whether his wife wants to keep family in Philly for Sixers job or move back to Los Angeles for the Clippers gig. 

The nomadic Brown has completed his latest reclamation project in Charlotte, leading the Bobcats to their first ever playoff appearance.

We all know the baggage that comes with Brown but he would be such an upgrade over the Ed Stefanski/Jordan regime that it's almost incumbent for Ed Snider to bring him back.
