Larry Brown, the Hall of Fame coach who resigned from the 76ers six days ago, will be the next coach of the Detroit Pistons, sources with the league and the Sixers said yesterday. Sources confirmed that Brown, 62, agreed to a five-year, $25 million contract with Detroit, the same team he lost to in the playoffs two weeks ago. An announcement by the Pistons was expected early tomorrow afternoon. "As I've said before, the team that hires me will be the one to make the announcement," Brown said by telephone yesterday.

Rick Carlisle said he would talk to three teams during this week's NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago. Tuesday night, according to the Los Angeles Daily News, the former Pistons coach spoke with Los Angeles Clippers general manager Elgin Baylor. He will speak to the Washington Wizards soon. So the question is: Who is the third team? The 76ers are interested in Carlisle, but not because they want him to replace Larry Brown as coach. The Sixers want Carlisle to go to Portland, so they can nab Trail Blazers coach Maurice Cheeks, a former Sixers star whose number hangs from the First Union Center rafters.

Rick Carlisle was hired yesterday as the Indiana Pacers' new coach, 3 years after the former assistant was bypassed in favor of Isiah Thomas. Carlisle, coach of the Detroit Pistons the past 2 years, was fired by the Pistons in May. He was the first choice for the Pacers after new president Larry Bird, his former Boston teammate, fired Thomas last month. "I know our fans are familiar with him, and I look forward to a great year," Bird said in a statement. "He has tremendous knowledge of the game, and I firmly believe he is the right coach for this team.

Rick Carlisle will be the new coach of the Dallas Mavericks, a decision expected for nearly a week but slowed by contract negotiations. The papers aren't signed yet, but team owner Mark Cuban confirmed in an e-mail to the Associated Press last night that a verbal deal is in place. The contract "will be signed tomorrow [Saturday]," with a news conference Wednesday because Cuban will be out of town until then. Carlisle said, "Whatever Mark told you is what's going on. I'm not going to make any comments about it right now. " Carlisle was the only candidate the Mavericks interviewed after firing coach Avery Johnson the morning after their second straight first-round playoff exit.

INDIANAPOLIS - Rick Carlisle has this 50-victory thing down pat. Ron Artest scored 21 points to lead the Indiana Pacers to an 80-71 triumph over the Portland Trail Blazers last night, giving Carlisle his third 50-win season in his third season as a head coach. Reggie Miller added 18 points for the Pacers, who improved the NBA's best record to 50-17. Carlisle won exactly 50 games in his first two seasons coaching the Detroit Pistons before being replaced by Larry Brown last summer.

The Phoenix Suns couldn't win after they lost Steve Nash. Jermaine O'Neal had 29 points, 12 rebounds and six blocks to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 101-83 victory over the visiting Suns last night, giving the Suns a second consecutive loss for only the second time this season. Nash, who leads the NBA in assists with 11.1 per game and sets the Suns' frenetic tempo, left early in the second quarter with a bruised left thigh and did not return. Nash, who also had his nose bloodied in the first quarter, finished with 11 points in 11 minutes.

One-third of the potential Philadelphia-Detroit-Portland triangle was completed yesterday when Larry Brown accepted the Pistons' head-coaching position. The remaining two-thirds, however, remain incomplete. Will Rick Carlisle talk to the Blazers about returning to the team where he was an assistant for three seasons? As a result, will Maurice Cheeks talk to the 76ers about returning to the team where he played for 11 seasons, and served as an assistant for seven? "There's nothing to talk about at this point," said a source close to Carlisle.

Larry Bird insisted he took his new job with an open mind about the future of coach Isiah Thomas. The Indiana Pacers' president of basketball operations needed only 7 weeks to come to a decision. Bird wasted little time in making his first major move, firing Thomas yesterday and immediately targeting former assistant Rick Carlisle as his successor. "I just had a gut feeling this wasn't going to work," Bird said of a surprise move that came only 2 months before the start of the season.

Wasn't it just a month ago that Larry Bird and Pacers forward Ron Artest were smiling on the cover of Sports Illustrated? Wasn't Artest saying, "I want to spend the rest of my life here," and that "people let you be yourself" in Indianapolis? Wasn't Bird, the team's president, saying, "Because of his intensity and desire to win, Ronnie's a guy I would pay money to watch play"? Time flies. Now, Artest has demanded a trade, saying he doesn't care for head coach Rick Carlisle's style and wants to play elsewhere - with the Knicks, if possible.

Allen Iverson isn't one to make excuses, but the 76ers guard wasn't feeling his best, and the Indiana Pacers aren't a team to play against at less than full strength. The Pacers can make even the healthiest of opponents look as if they just got out of sick bay. Their blazing start continued last night as they whipped the Sixers, 90-77, at a sold-out Conseco Fieldhouse. The flu-ridden Iverson also had a case of the offensive blahs. He scored a season-low 12 points, shooting 4 for 19 from the field.

Quite a notable assemblage of coaches intently watched the 76ers' morning workout yesterday: former Sixers coach Billy Cunningham, Penn's Fran Dunphy, La Salle's Billy Hahn, Isiah Thomas. Isiah Thomas? Yes. The former Indiana Pacers coach, who was unceremoniously dumped by team president Larry Bird on Aug. 27 - too late for him to hook up with another NBA team before the start of this season - was at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine at the invitation of Sixers coach Randy Ayers.
