After a year of inactivity, it was the Lakers who trusted him. But after a second round of play-offs in 2012, he was fired after five games the following season, due to poor results despite the arrival of Dwight Howard and Steve Nash. Mike Brown then returned to Cleveland for the 2013-14 season, but without LeBron James results did not follow (no play-offs). The coach finally became an assistant again in 2016, at the great rival of the Cavaliers, Golden State, with the key to two new titles, and he still occupies this position.. Mike Brown will stay in San Francisco until the end of the play-offs, before heading to the capital of California. This season, the Kings finished twelfth in the Western Conference, four wins from the play-in, despite the presence of players like Domantas Sabonis (who arrived during the season) and De’Aron Fox. Mike Brown has his work cut out for him!
