Warriors associate head coach Mike Brown has his next job lined up.
After six seasons on the Golden State bench, Brown will head up I-80 to become the Sacramento Kings’ head coach, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The sides have reportedly agreed to a four-year deal.
Brown, 51, has been a head coach in the league before, with two stints in Cleveland (2005-2010, 2013-14) and a year-plus with the Lakers (2013-14). He boasts a career head coaching record of 347-216 over eight seasons, which ranks as the ninth-best winning percentage in NBA history among coaches who’ve registered at least 500 games.
Brown succeeds Alvin Gentry, who took over for Luke Walton early last season. Former Warriors coach Mark Jackson was another finalist for the job.
