Larry Brown on the move (again)?

The New York Post is reporting that Larry Brown has received permission from Bobcats owner Michael Jordan to take over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Coincidentally squared, Next Town Brown, I’m informed, has received approval from Bobcats owner Michael Jordan to return home, home on the range — Philadelphia — where his wife, school-age children and the antelopes still play, to re-take control of the 76ers from top to bottom.

Larry Brown in a dual coach/GM role? This ought to be good.

I think it’s safe to say that the Sixers are a mess. They won’t have any significant cap room until the summer of 2011, and the Elton Brand signing hasn’t exactly worked out.

Still, there is some talent here — Jrue Holiday, Marreese Speights and Thaddeus Young are nice prospects and Andre Iguodala is a good all-around player. Brown has a history of raising the level of bad franchises, but he doesn’t have a long-term outlook and typically burns out pretty quickly. How does that work when he’s the general manager?

Like I said, this ought to be interesting.

Update: Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that the Clippers are another possibility.
