Rumors have surfaced that ex-Cleveland Browns head coach Larry Brown could be heading to the Los Angeles Lakers.   The Lakers organization is believed to be interviewing Brown next week. 

From ESPN.com:

The former Cleveland Cavaliers coach, now working as an analyst for ESPN, is expected to interview "soon" with the Lakers, sources say.

Brown would become the fourth known candidate for the job, along with former Houston Rockets coach Rick Adelman, ex-Los Angeles Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy and Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw, who is regarded as the only serious in-house contender to replace Jackson.

Brown is widely regarded in coaching circles as the leading candidate in Golden State to replace Keith Smart. Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird also said this week that he intends to contact Brown -- as well as Adelman -- to gauge his interest in returning to Indiana, where Brown worked as an assistant before joining the Cavs.

As ACC play enters the midway point in the schedule, the legitimate contenders have started to take shape in an otherwise crowded field of mediocrity in conference play. Florida State has been one of the ACC’s best groups so far this season, while Virginia hasn’t quite lived up to the early season hype. After playing a back-and-forth nail-biter in Tallahassee just two weeks ago, Florida State is again looking to emerge victorious while the Cavaliers are looking to enact some revenge from a close conference defeat.

College Basketball Betting – Kansas Jayhawks at Oklahoma State Cowboys

On paper this looks like it should be rout. The Kansas Jayhawks have won four in a row and seven of their last eight with the only setback to No. 1 Baylor. They are 16-3 overall on the season. The Oklahoma State Cowboys sit at the bottom of the Big 12 standings but got a boost by snapping a six-game losing streak with a win over Texas AM on Saturday in the Big 12/SEC Challenge. It doesn’t count on their conference ledger, but the Pokes should be a more confident group when KU visits on Monday night.
