Mike Brown to coach the Lakers
By Andy Kamenetzky
Yesterday's speculation has become today's hard news.
According to Chris Broussard, the Lakers and Mike Brown have agreed in principle to a deal making him the team's next coach. According to Broussard, the announcement could come today, with the contract officially inked next week. Brown's services will be worth $18.25 million in total -- a little over $4.5 million annually -- and he'll be on board for three seasons, with a team option for a fourth year. (If the option isn't picked up, Brown will make $2.5 million.)
