Report: Brian Shaw early frontrunner for 76ers coaching job


Is this the summer Brian Shaw finally lands a head coaching job?

He’s been at the top of the assistant coaching ranks for a couple of years now, interviewed for a number of jobs and just not gotten a shot in the big chair. Now it looks like he could get a shot with an interesting rebuilding project in the City of Brotherly Love.

Via the twitter of CBSSports.com’s Ken Berger.


Brown has just landed a new job as the headman of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Again.

That leaves Shaw. He’s been at the right hand of Phil Jackson and Frank Vogel, he’s a guy the players on both the Lakers and Pacers respect and like. He relates to players and has good basketball knowledge. He’s not just a triangle guy, he’s a good basketball coach.

It’s early in the process, Shaw is still engaged with the Indiana Pacers, where he is the lead assistant on a team making a run in the playoffs that likely goes on for a few more weeks (to the second round, at least). The Sixers will certainly consider other names as well.

Shaw would likely be a good fit in Philly, although the question remains what kind of team are they building in Philly? Or are they just going to tread water with the roster this summer, moving on from the expectations of Andrew Bynum and looking for the next mega-deal where they can land a superstar player? It’s that or rebuild completely, and I’m not sure that would sit well with the fan base right now.

I can see this happening.

I'd rather take Adelman and Sloan than Shaw, but if we're going to fire MDA we better be reaching out to our contacts.

I would like to see Shaw take a more stable position, but good for him regardless. I still think he deserves the Lakers gig.
