Cavs like Brian Shaw, Byron ScottPosted by Inside Hoops
Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal reports:
While the Cavaliers await a decision on LeBron James’ future, their coaching search appears to be nearing the final stages.
Los Angeles Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw arrived in town Monday and will continue meetings with owner Dan Gilbert and General Manager Chris Grant today, the team confirmed. The Cavs would like to make a decision on their next coach today, according to a source with knowledge of their plans, although a ”decision” does not necessarily mean a contract offer today.
By the conclusion of the interviews with Shaw, however, the team will probably choose between him and Byron Scott.
Shaw, who is represented by CAA Sports, the same firm that represents James, is the second known candidate, after Michigan State’s Tom Izzo, to be brought to Cleveland for an interview. Team executives met with Scott in Michigan on Father’s Day, according to his agent, Brian McInerney, but no offer was made.
