Former 76ers assistant coach Kevin Young has accepted an assistant coaching with the Phoenix Suns.
The 38-year-old will reunite with Suns head coach Monty Williams, who spent the 2018-19 season as the Sixers associate head coach.
Young has been a member of the Sixers organization since the 2013-14 season as an assistant coach for the Delaware 87ers. (The Sixers' G-League team changed their name to the Blue Coats on March 28, 2018.) He had a stint as their head coach before serving as a Sixers assistant under Brett Brown during the last four seasons.
The Sixers fired Brown on Aug. 24 after seven seasons. Young interviewed for that job, but it went to Doc Rivers last week.
