It’s being reported by WKYC’s sports producer Brian Crane that a meeting between Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and former Cavaliers and Lakers head coach Mike Brown will take place this evening. https://twitter.com/brianjcrane/status/325979964899983360 Brown was the coach of the Cavaliers from 2005-2010. In that time, he won 314 games, including a playoff record of 42-29, which makes him the Cavaliers’ franchise leader in winning percentage for both the regular season and playoffs. His Cavaliers won the Eastern Conference in 2007, and he earned Coach of the Year honors in 2009. Brown is known for his defensive prowess, but he has been criticized for his lack of in-game adjustments and his team’s offensive struggles. In the summer of 2010, Brown was dismissed and replaced by Byron Scott, ahead of the LeBron James free agent decision. Scott was fired this week after three seasons and only 64 wins.Brown was dismissed by the Lakers just five games into the season this year, replaced eventually by Mike D’Antoni. Other names mentioned for the Cavaliers opening include former Cavs assistant and current Golden State assistant Mike Malone, former Lakers and current Pacers assistant Brian Shaw (a candidate the last time the Cavaliers had a head coach search), Miami assistant David Fizdale, and yes, even former Bulls and Lakers coach and Hall-of-Famer Phil Jackson.
