If anything has been learned in the NBA this summer, it's that you can go home again.

Reunions are all the rage across the league these days, with some more surprising than others. Mike Brown is back as Cleveland's head coach after being fired by the Cavaliers three years ago.

Flip Saunders has taken over as president of basketball operations in Minnesota eight years after the Timberwolves fired him as head coach. Larry Bird has returned to Indiana's front office.

Chauncey Billups signed with the Detroit Pistons, the team that he led to a title in 2004 and traded him away four years later. And Metta World Peace is joining his hometown New York Knicks.

They all say the familiarity of their surroundings made their decisions easy ones.
