Former NBA head coaches Al Attles and Hubie Brown will be awarded the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award during Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday.

Named in honor of the Hall of Famer, the Chuck Daly Lifetime Achievement Award is presented annually by the National Basketball Coaches Association to recognize and honor coaches who have made a special contribution to the sport throughout their NBA careers.
