Default Shaw Turned Down Offer To Coach Bobcats, Still Waiting For Right Opportunity

Quote:
Brian Shaw turned down an offer to coach the Charlotte Bobcats, who currently hold the NBA’s worst record.

"I want to be in a situation where I have a chance," Shaw said. "Usually when you come into your first head coaching job, you don't get to dictate what the situation is going to be. But you want a chance and an organization that has a game plan going forward that's sustainable and where you have some pieces of value where you can put things together and get on the fast track."

Shaw also interviewed for vacant head coaching positions during the offseason with the Portland Trail Blazers and Orlando Magic.

"I'm perceived as just a triangle guy," Shaw said. "I have conversations with Phil [Jackson] and I said, 'I thought working for you and playing for you would be my biggest asset going into interviews. Actually it's been my biggest liability.'

"We've laughed about it. He's said to me on more than one occasion, 'It's best for you to distance yourself from me and our system.' "

Shaw has spent the past two seasons as the Indiana Pacers' associate coach, partly serving as a mentor for head coach Frank Vogel.

"When he gets an opportunity," Vogel said, "he's going to be a coach of the year candidate every single year."

Too bad either Casey or Shaw wouldn't consider being an assistant (well Shaw might but highly unlikely) but was thinking that with all of Shaws experience (playing and coaching) he would certainly tune up our offense.

Might be a nice replacement, though I also doubt Casey is going anywhere yet.

Shaw is already an assistant in Indiana. going to Toronto to do the same job is a step down.
He'll probably end up with the Lakers when they get sick of Pringles.

That's right, I forgot about Indiana. He's going to be an excellent Head Coach.

He'd probably reject a Raptors offer too.

No way. He'll never go back to the Lakers after they didn't give him a shot instead of Pringles. I actually think he's a very good coach in that he's still young enough to remember being a player but professional enough to get in some guys faces and seems like he's good at Xs and Os. He'd actually be a really good choice for Casey's replacement but I really think this franchise needs a league respected former head coach to bring some experience. We haven't had a coach talk from experience since Lenny.
