Cleveland have confirmed that Mike Brown has returned to the team for a second stint as head coach.

Brown led the Cavaliers to the play-offs in five straight seasons, but the departure of LeBron James led him being sacked after the 2009/10 season.

Byron Scott took over but was unable to improve their fortunes as Cleveland failed to finish each of the last three seasons with a winning record.

Scott was fired last week, and Brown has agreed to return to the club next season.

The 43-year-old had a brief spell as Los Angeles Lakers coach at the start of this season before being released only five games into the campaign.

His career winning percentage of .652 is the sixth best in NBA history among coaches in charge for at least 400 games.
