Brown Calls His Next Shot...

If you believe the report by ESPN's Chad Ford (and there's no reason not to), Detroit Pistons coach Larry Brown has already decided his next move -- president of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who just hired Indiana assistant Mike Brown as their next head coach.
Reached earlier Monday by The Associated Press as he watched a movie with his daughter, Brown refused comment other than to say: "If I'm healthy, my goal is to be the coach of the Detroit Pistons. That's the only thing that's really real."

In recent days, Brown has said repeatedly that he intends to check into a hospital after the season is over because of a serious medical condition. The condition has developed as a result of midseason hip surgery he underwent, and Brown wants a medical evaluation. However, sources maintain that while Brown's medical condition might keep him from coaching again, they do not believe it is serious enough to keep him from working as a team president.

While I certainly respect this move from a health standpoint, it would've been nice for Brown and Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert to try and be more discreet about this situation. I guess I shouldn't expect anything less from Brown, who's always been more enamored with his next job than his current one.
