New coach Brown puts 76ers through first practice

Brett Brown had to hold himself back on the first day of practice.

As the Philadelphia 76ers opened training camp Saturday morning at Saint Joseph's University, the first-year coach dialed it back at the first official session with his new team.

His experience as an assistant for six seasons under San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, and as the Australian national team coach at the 2012 London Olympics taught him that it's not beneficial to try to cram too much into the first day.

Brown says that "you do want to get going, you do want to come out in a sprint, and it's not that."
