Larry Brown’s name has popped up in the rumor mill as a candidate to be the Lakers’ next coach, but he doesn’t seem interested in the gig. From USA Today:

“I’ve always kept in touch with Mitch; I admire the hell out of him,” the 73-year-old Brown told USA TODAY Sports by phone on Tuesday. “I talk to Mitch all the time. … (But) we’re not talking about coaching the Lakers. I’ve read some of the names. They’ve got a long list of good people to choose from, and I’m here at SMU. I want to win a national championship.”
