The person spoke only on condition of anonymity Tuesday because negotiations were ongoing.
Brown went 272-138 and went to the playoffs all five of his years with the Cavs, teaming with LeBron James on a run to the NBA Finals in 2007. He was fired after a loss to Boston in the conference semifinals in 2010.
Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert hired Byron Scott to replace Brown. Scott was fired last week after three seasons.
Brown spent one full season with the Los Angeles Lakers, who fired him five games into this season.
