Mike Brown has an agreement with the Cleveland Cavaliers to return as head coach.
The agreement is described as being in 'handshake' in nature.
Brown has a career record of 314-167 during his 481 games with the Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers. Brown won 66 and 61 games during his final two seasons with the Cavaliers, but failed to win a title with a team built around LeBron James.
Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! reports that Brown will sign a five-year deal worth more than $20 million.
James has been linked to a potential return to the Cavaliers in 2014, though the presence of Brown would represent an unknown factor in his decision-making process.
