Report: Warriors assistant Brown talks with Knicks about head coaching job


At some point, Mike Brown wants to be a head coach again.

The Warriors assistant spoke with the Knicks about their head-coaching vacancy, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

It's unclear when the conversation took place and ESPN did not specifically say whether it was a formal interview.

A couple of weeks ago, Brown talked with NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole about being patient when it comes to taking another head gig.

"For me, it's fairly easy to be patient," Brown said on the Warriors Insider Podcast. "Part of it is, I feel like I don't ever get too high or too low ... I try to stay as even-keeled as possible ... yes, someday I would like to be a head coach again, but the thing that helps me out more than anything else is this organization.

"I think if I was with a different group, a different organization, maybe if we weren't winning at the level we are winning at or at least the potential to win at the level that we have -- maybe I'd be champing at the bit."

Brown also said that he won't just take any job.

"One of the things that I look at more than anything else -- there are only so many teams that truly have an opportunity to win it each year ... from there, you gotta look at the makeup of the team, the direction of the team.

"When it comes to being selective, it's not necessarily about going to a team that's a winning team or that has a winning record. The most important thing -- at least what I've seen in winning organizations -- is that there's a connection between the front office and the coaching staff; more importantly the general manager and the head coach."
