Nets to meet with Brian Shaw Wednesday

The Brooklyn Nets will meet with Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw Wednesday to discuss their open head coaching position, according to Peter Vecsey on Twitter:

Shaw has been the team’s top target for some time now, though the sudden reports of Jason Kidd’s interest in the vacancy complicate that list.

Shaw has been an assistant coach since retiring in 2004, first with the Los Angeles Lakers under Phil Jackson for all but one season, then as an associate head coach with the Indiana Pacers until this past season. Shaw believed he was in line to succeed Jackson as head coach of the Lakers in 2011, even getting the blessing of Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, but he was passed over for Mike Brown. (Brown was fired five games into his second season.)
