Detroit Pistons and Larry Brown are parting ways

The Detroit Pistons and Larry Brown moved closer Monday to a buyout of Brown's contract, which has three years left at an estimated $18 million. Brown said recently that he was "confident" about returning to the Pistons next season, having overcome season-long speculation about new jobs to lead Detroit to within one victory of back-to-back championships. Yet Brown, according to sources, could not guarantee that his health would hold up for a full season, which Pistons owner Bill Davidson had made a prerequisite for the 64-year-old's return.
