CLEVELAND — Mike Brown and the Cleveland Cavaliers are getting back together.
Brown, who coached the Cavs to the playoffs in all five seasons (2005 to 2010), has agreed to a five-year, $20 million deal, sources told ESPN.com’s Brian Windhorst and ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard on Tuesday. The Cavs have a team option for the fifth year, which is partially guaranteed for Brown.
Brown’s hiring could be announced as early as Wednesday.
Brown will return to the job the Cavs fired him from in 2010 despite back-to-back 60-win seasons. He was the Cavs’ top choice for the job and the only person they interviewed, though they did reach out to former Lakers and Bulls coach Phil Jackson to gauge if he had any interest.
