Warriors assistant coach Mike Brown is "on Ohio State's radar."

Brown has expressed interest in coaching college in the past, but it's hard to imagine him leaving the Warriors and Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical is reporting that Brown wouldn't be interested at the moment. No contact has been made yet, but it makes sense for Ohio State to wait until after the Finals conclude anyways. Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg is also a rumored candidate, but he downplayed those reports on Wednesday.

Mike Brown is expected to be the lead coach on the sidelines for Game 2 of the Finals vs. Cleveland.

Warriors GM Bob Myers hinted on Saturday that there was a small possibility head coach Steve Kerr could return for Game 2, but as of Sunday afternoon, that seems unlikely. Since Kerr stepped away from the sidelines after Game 2 of the Dubs' first-round series, Brown has helped coach the team to 11-straight wins, and it looks like he'll be going after win No. 12 tonight.

Mike Brown (illness) was present during the Warriors' practice on Tuesday.

Steve Kerr ran Monday's practice with Brown at home with the flu, but Brown was back in action on Tuesday and said he was feeling "much better." Kerr said on Monday that he's still not feeling well enough to coach a game, so it looks like Brown will be the guy on the sidelines during the Finals. For what it's worth, Kerr said he will still travel with his team to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4.

Warriors acting head coach Mike Brown missed the team's practice on Monday due to an illness.

With Brown dealing with the flu, Steve Kerr filled in for him on Monday. However, Kerr said that he is still in pain and it appears unlikely that he will be ready to coach the team in Game 1. "No. As of right now, I would not coach Thursday night," Kerr said. "But it’s still up in the air. Waiting for that ‘ahhhhhh’ (moment). It’s coming." Kerr intimated that he wants to make a firm decision, one way or the other, about coaching in the Finals before Game 1. He doesn't want it to be a game-by-game decision.

The Warriors have officially added Mike Brown as an assistant coach on Steve Kerr's staff.

Brown won coach of the year in 2008-09 after guiding the Cavs to a 66-16 record, and compiled an impressive .616 win percentage in eight seasons as a head coach. He'll help fill the void created by Luke Walton's departure, bringing a seasoned, defense-oriented voice to the Warriors' already impressive coaching staff.

The Warriors have reportedly completed a deal for Mike Brown to join Steve Kerr's coaching staff.

Brown was reportedly one of the Dubs' top targets to fill Luke Walton's position, and now the Warriors have got their man. Serving as an assistant coach on Kerr's staff is an excellent move for Brown if he hopes to ever get offered a head coaching position again.

Steve Kerr has offered Golden State's top assistant job to Mike Brown, sources told Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

This has been in the works for weeks and should become official as soon as terms of the deal are worked out. After losing Alvin Gentry and Luke Walton in consecutive seasons to head coaching gigs, Brown will now be expected to serve as Kerr's right hand man.

The Warriors reportedly view Mike Brown as a top target to fill Luke Walton's position in Golden State.

ESPN reported during the Finals that Brown and Ty Corbin were the "top two targets" to fill Luke Walton's spot on the Warriors' coaching staff, and with Corbin going to Phoenix, Brown's shot at landing the gig may have increased.

Mike Brown is a candidate to join the Warriors' staff as an assistant coach next season.

With Luke Walton accepting the head-coaching position with the Lakers, the Warriors need someone to take his place. In addition to Brown, Ty Corbin is also a top contender for the job.

Mike Brown plans on taking the 2014-15 season off before pursuing any head coaching opportunities, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo.

Brown was fired after a disappointing 33-49 season in his second go-round as the Cavs head coach and faces a coaching landscape with few vacancies at the moment. There is the possibility that jobs will open up, but he hasn't been connected to the Knicks as of yet and the odds of him returning to the Lakers are about as good as the odds of Dwight Howard demanding a trade to Detroit to be reunited with Stan Van Gundy.

Mike Brown was fired as the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday.

Brown was in his second stint as head coach of the Cavaliers, but was let go after his first full season. The Cavaliers were a disappointing 33-49 this season, only good enough for 10th in a weak Eastern Conference. This is the third firing of Brown since 2010, and it seems unlikely he will get another head coaching gig for next season. The Cavaliers also announced on Monday they have hired David Griffin to be the team's general manager.

Cavaliers coach Mike Brown questioned his team's resolve after Sunday's 44-point loss in Sacramento.

Facing an enormous deficit, the Cavs seemed resigned to defeat throughout the second half. "How did we react when we were down?" Brown asked. "Did we fight or not? We didn't fight. That's disappointing. Hopefully it doesn't happen again, but I don’t know. I'm not sure with this team yet." Luol Deng has taken over the Cavs' disputed SF position and their 13-24 record could inspire further changes from Brown, but in the final analysis he doesn't have much flexibility with Cleveland's roster.

The Cavs hired Bernie Bickerstaff to complete Mike Brown's coaching staff.

Bickerstaff has been all over the league, including serving as interim coach of the Lakers after Brown was fired and before the team hired Mike D'Antoni. Bickerstaff will be joined on the staff by Jamahl Mosley, Jim Boylan, Igor Kokoskov, Phil Handy and former Cav Vitaly Potapenko.

The NBA says no trades were submitted before the 2 p.m. ET deadline meaning tonight's draft order is set.

This just means no team can pre-emptively move up or back in the draft. However, teams can still shop the selection, pick for other teams and execute trades with players' rights after the pick is officially registered. With all the rumors flying and the uncertainty surrounding the top five picks, it stands to be a wild first round.
