DALLAS, Texas Larry Brown has always been known as a traveling man. The SMU basketball coach could be leaving again, according to at least one report.
Brown, who has been at SMU just one season, was on a short list of candidates to be the next coach of the Brooklyn Nets, an anonymous source told ESPN's Chris Broussard.
The other candidates, according to Broussard's tweet, are Phil Jackson and Brian Shaw. According to another anonymous source, Jackson has told the Nets he's not interested.
The 72-year-old Brown has not said, either publicly or through a source, whether he's interested in coaching the Nets. An SMU spokesman declined to comment.
Although he's known for coaching Kansas to the 1988 NCAA title, Brown has an extensive coaching career in the professional ranks, starting in 1972 with the Carolina Cougars of the old ABA. He's even coached the Nets before, during the 1981-82 and 82-83 seasons.
Brown was born in Brooklyn and grew up not far away in Long Beach, Long Island...
