“All rumors are completely false. Mike Brown will be the Cavaliers head coach next season,” a team source told Chris Broussard of ESPN The Magazine.
The Cavs front office are trying to do a little damage control after rumors started that they might be looking to replace Mike Brown. A couple of sources yesterday said that the Cavs front office was at odds with each other over the decision to keep their head coach. I am not sure how any owner could get away with firing the NBA coach of the year, but I am sure Brown would find a new job rather quickly.
This is good news for Cavs fans. Now I know all of us were frustrated with how the team and coaching staff performed in the Eastern Conference Finals. Ask anyone close to me and they would tell you that series killed me. I was at game 4 and it was one tough pill to swallow. But hear me out on this, bringing in a new coach during the last season of LeBron’s contract would be putting everything into next season. I think if LeBron sees consistency from the Cavs and the front office improves the talent around him this off-season they will be better suited to resign the King.
