Found May 06, 2013 on RealGM:
Donnie Walsh expects Brian Shaw's name to come up in head coaching vacancies this offseason and will give the Indiana Pacers' associate coach permission to interview for the Brooklyn Nets' opening at season's end. “I think Brian would be great as a head coach," Walsh said Sunday. “Just as I thought Mark Jackson would be a tremendous coach, I feel the same way about Brian. They both know the game, you can tell they see it like head coaches. And they also know how to relate to players and get them to do what they need to be successful." Phil Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy have also been reported as potential candidates for the Nets. The only person Billy King ruled out Sunday was Mike Krzyzewski of Duke.
