The reports are just starting to come in, but Sam Amick of USA Today is reporting that the Lakers have fired Mike Brown:
Problem with link being fixed. Brown's agent, Warren LeGarie, told USA TODAY Sports Brown is gone. Source close to situation confirms too.

On the heels of receiving a vote of confidence from Jim Buss just two days ago, it seems there’s been a change of heart in the Lakers’ front office.
This move is pretty much unprecedented for a Laker franchise that has typically been cautious in making major moves of any kind, but especially one of this nature. However, it seems the team’s sluggish start to the season forced ownership’s hand.
Where the Lakers’ go from here is still unknown. We’ll have updates throughout the day as more information comes in. But for those that wanted change, here you have it.
