CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – The question was asked during Chris Grant’s presser on Thursday, and while he denied to talk about it, the rumors are getting stronger.
The Cavs very well may bring back Mike Brown as the teams next coach.
The Plain Dealer is reporting that a “longtime NBA insider” told paper that the Cavs “may move quickly (to hire Brown) for fear that other NBA teams will court Brown.”
Brown was the head coach of the Cavs during the glory seasons of LeBron James, and lead the Cavs to the NBA Finals back in the 2007 season, losing to the Spurs in four games.
This past season Brown was head coach of the Lakers, but was blown out after just five games into the season.
Brown told the paper that as of late Thursday night, he had had not been contacted by the Cavs. The report goes on to say that Brown claimed if the Cavs called – he would listen.
Grant said Thursday that he wanted the next Cavs coach to be someone with experience, as well as a defensive coach. All the qualities that Grant spoke of – Brown has.
Now the question is – how fast will the Cavs move to talk to Brown, and will it be a comeback that will get the Cavs headed in the right direction?
