The Lakers made it official in their efforts to move on without coach Phil Jackson by hiring former Cavaliers head man Mike Brown. He is expected to sign a deal worth about $4.5 million a season over four years for a total of about $18 million. Brown posted a 272-138 record in five seasons with the Cavaliers before he was fired after the 2010 season.
