The Brooklyn Nets reportedly have serious interest in Pacers assistant, Brian Shaw, who Paul George credited for his breakout season, as their next head coach. The Nets have also contacted Memphis’ Lionel Hollins and ESPN analyst, Jeff Van Gundy, about their coaching vacancy.
According to ESPN:
Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw is a serious target for the Brooklyn Nets, NBA coaching sources tell ESPN.com’s Marc Stein and ESPN The Magazine’s Chris Broussard.
The Nets are expected to request permission to interview Shaw now that Indiana has been eliminated from the playoffs. The Los Angeles Clippers have already contacted Shaw about their coaching vacancy, as well.
