Brown is reportedly one of three finalists, along with ESPN analyst Mark Jackson and former Magic and Hornets coach Steve Clifford.

“Mike is willing to take the job based on the fact that he knows he’ll be supported and have a chance to win,” LeGarie said, via Anderson. “He sees this as a good job and looks forward to being asked to be the head coach.”

Brown has also coached the Cavaliers, on two occasions, and the Lakers. With the Cavs, he coached LeBron James, and later, Kyrie Irving. With the Lakers, he coached Kobe Bryant.

“First and foremost, he likes the people who are working there,” LeGarie said. “He loves the arena. He thinks that’s a natural resource that will help attract players because you’ve always got to have a place where the fans are involved and the facilities are terrific. And he believes the team has enough talent to give them a real solid chance of becoming a playoff contender.”

The Kings are looking to replace interim coach Alvin Gentry, who took over for Luke Walton early in the season.
