Hall-of-Fame basketball coach Larry Brown is set to finalise a deal with Italian Cup champions Torino with the two camps locked in advanced talks, according to Italian media.

The 78-year-old boasts an impressive career in the game that includes him being a member of the Hall of Fame, an NBA champion in 2004, an NCAA champion in 1988 and also an ABA champion as a player back in 1969.

If appointed, Dante Calabria is expected to be Brown’s assistant coach for a team that looks to aim high and spend big.
