NBA: Cavaliers, Brown parted ways

NEW YORK —ESPN is reporting that the Cleveland Cavaliers have fired coach Mike Brown.

In a story posted on ESPN’s website citing a source, the Cavaliers had until midnight on Sunday to fire Brown or pay him his full $4.5 million salary for next season.

Brown had one year remaining on a contract extension he signed after taking the Cavaliers to their first NBA finals in 2007. He’s 314-167 in five seasons with Cleveland and has guided the team to the postseason in each of his five seasons. The Cavaliers finished the regular season with an NBA-best 61 wins, but were bounced out of the playoffs in the second round by the Boston Celtics. - AP

  1. Get ready, because this is only the first Brown/Cavs parting...Lebron is leaving for New York and we all know it. He wants a championship...clearly the Browns can't get him that, so he should go somewhere where he'll get more money, more team players, more publicity...and all while living in the most popular city in the Western Hemisphere. How does one top that?
