Source: Cavs Finalizing Deal with Brian Shaw

by June 29, 2010

Take the FanHouse report with a grain of salt, but it seems like Brian Shaw has emerged as the favorite to be on the Cavs sidelines next season: “With or without LeBron James, Brian Shaw is looking like the next Cleveland Cavaliers coach. A source told FanHouse the Lakers assistant is close to finalizing a deal to join the Cavaliers just one day before James’ much-anticipated free agency begins. Shaw was a finalist with former New Orleans and New Jersey coach Byron Scott after Michigan State coach Tom Izzo declined the team’s offer earlier this month.”
