Speaking of Charlotte, multiple NBA sources said coach Larry Brown has made preliminary calls to the Clippers to try to line up a position with that organization in case things with Jordan go sideways. Brown, according to sources, was concerned that George Postolos, Charlotte's would-be owner if Jordan's group hadn't raised the necessary capital, was prepared to clean house, which meant that Brown would have been out.

I posted this in Rumors, but so everyone can see it i am reposting it in the main page

  1. Speaking of Charlotte, multiple NBA sources said coach Larry Brown has made preliminary calls to the Clippers to try to line up a position with that organization in case things with Jordan go sideways.

Brown, according to sources, was concerned that George Postolos, Charlotte's would-be owner if Jordan's group hadn't raised the necessary capital, was prepared to clean house, which meant that Brown would have been out. To preserve his position as an NBA coach, Brown reached out to Clippers owner Donald Sterling to let him know that he is open to returning to L.A.

Brown did not return several calls seeking comment.

One source indicated Brown was seeking complete control, including the ability to make personnel decisions. Sterling is said to still be enamored with the idea of getting Brown, who coached the Clippers to the playoffs in 1992 and '93. Brown also has a home in Malibu and his wife is said to want to move back there. GM Mike Dunleavy stepped down as coach in early February, and it's possible that Sterling will revamp the front office in the offseason.

If that is the case, expect Sterling to have at least one substantive conversation with Brown.

Jordan already has taken over the majority ownership of the Bobcats.... plus Larry Brown would be all wrong for this team he's way more controlling of Dunleavy and wants to have control of management and coaching....

Larry Brown would be great for the team. I'm not sure if Sterling is willing to pay him what he deserves, but if the two sides can come to terms it'd be really something. Those two seasons he was with the Clippers were two of the most memorable and exciting years.

I don't think he's coming cause Jordan is buying the team, but atleast it shows that someone of Larry Browns stature actually wants to come here which might help cause interest amongst other players and coaches. Maybe not. Either way, I'm kinda interested in what GM Dunleavys plan is for this team. He set up a nice core and has all that cap space, I want to see what he pulls off.

We had Brown before. His best coaching days IMHO are behind him just as they are with Dunleavy. Hiring Brown would be a step in the wrong direction. They are plenty of coaches out there that can do a much better job then him.
