New Coach Brown to be Introduced Tuesday

The Lakers released a media advisory on Monday afternoon to announce an introductory press conference for new head coach Mike Brown on Tuesday afternoon at 3:00 p.m.

You’ll be able to watch the press conference live on Lakers.com, and we’ll add coverage on Twitter via the @Lakers and @LakersReporter handles.

The team initially announced last Wednesday that Brown would very likely be the new coach, and Brown took questions during halftime of Thursday’s Western Conference Finals matchup.

Brown saw considerable success in his previous head coaching position with the Cleveland Cavaliers (2005-2010), averaging 54.4 wins per season for a collective 66.3 percent winning percentage, the fifth highest in NBA history. The league’s Coach of the Year after a 66-win season (2008-09), Brown led his Cavs to the Finals in 2007, and made it to at least the second round of the playoffs in all five of his years in the top seat.
