Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown has an interest in joining Doc Rivers’ Boston Celtics staff as an assistant coach, assuming Lawrence Frank accepts the Detroit Pistons’ head coaching job, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Despite Brown’s credentials and good relationship with Rivers, the Celtics coach is inclined to promote a well-regarded young assistant on his staff – Mike Longabardi – sources said. Nevertheless, Rivers hasn’t ruled out the idea of further discussing a spot for Brown on his bench next season.

Would this be a good move with Brown on the staff?

Hes been open & interested in bascially every coaching job that had recently opened up in the college ranks(UNLV, Oklahoma, Miami, Missouri, Penn State, etc). He also has been interested in getting back into the NBA coaching.

No doubt he knows Zone Defense & X's and O's. If he can check his ego he could be a good 1 year replacement for Frank.

If he's interested I'd jump on that if I were the Celtics, he's one of the better basketball minds of all time.

Frank should take the head coaching job, and Brown should replace him. That's best for all parties involved.

This would be a great move for the Celtics if this happens.

I'd take it.

He almost took the job in 2007/8, but pulled his name from consideration which led to the C's getting Thibs.

This would increase the possibility of AI signing with Boston. I'd fully expect Larry Brown to campaign for AI to Doc Rivers, and in that locker room AI would fit in great.

Avery Bradley > AI.

If I'm a fan of Boston, I'm not excited because this can get Allen iverson on my team...I'm excited because Larry is a genius.
