How Warriors’ Mike Brown re-emerged as popular NBA head-coaching candidate — Daily Republic

Warriors assistant Mike Brown makes sure to bring a notepad and pen to team meetings so that he can jot down whatever head coach Steve Kerr tells the players.

Later, when Brown has some free time, he reviews the specific messaging Kerr chose. This is a routine Brown developed in his first season with Golden State four years ago – not just because he appreciates Kerr’s oration, but because he would someday like to emulate it.

Brown, who accumulated a combined record of 347-216 leading the Cavaliers (2005-10, 2013-14) and Lakers (2011-12), recently re-emerged as a popular candidate for NBA head-coaching vacancies. Within the past several months, he interviewed for openings with the Knicks, Pacers and Clippers.

Though Brown’s sit-downs with executives from New York and Indiana were merely over Zoom, he flew into Los Angeles earlier this month to meet with the Clippers’ brass for a day and a half. After having dinner on a Saturday night with general manager Michael Winger and president of basketball operations Lawrence Frank, Brown spent Sunday talking with team owner Steve Ballmer and the rest of the organization’s high-ranking executives.
