LeBron James ‘Very Happy’ for Mike Brown
Mike Brown and the Cavaliers are getting back together.
Brown, who led the Cavs to the playoffs in all five seasons he coached them from 2005-10, has agreed in principle to a contract to return as their coach for a second time, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
Brown’s hiring could be announced as early as Wednesday.
“I’m happy for him,” said Miami’s LeBron James, who played in Cleveland under Brown. “Very happy for him. I think he’s a really good coach, very defensive-minded coach. It’ll be good for those young guys that they have.”
