ABC Sports on Tuesday said it has hired Hubie Brown, who recently retired as head coach of the Memphis Grizzlies, as lead analyst on the network’s lead NBA broadcast team. Mr. Brown will work with Al Michaels on a select number of regular-season and playoff games, as well as the NBA Finals. He will also work games with play-by-play voice Mike Breen.

The first game that Mr. Brown and Mr. Michaels will broadcast will be the much-anticipated first-time return on Christmas Day of Shaquille O’Neal, with his new team, the Miami Heat, to Los Angeles, where he will face his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers, and Kobe Bryant.
