Cavs Receive Permission To Talk To Lakers Assistant Brian Shaw

It’s unclear where the Cleveland Cavaliers are in their ongoing talks with Byron Scott, but Associated Press writer Tom Withers reports that the Cavs have been granted permission to talk to Los Angeles Lakers assistant Brian Shaw.

Lakers spokesman said Cavs were granted permission to speak with Shaw “a couple days ago.”

Shaw won 3 titles as player with Lakers, 2 as coach. He’s expected to be candidate to replace Phil Jackson if Zen Master retires.

If Shaw was to leave Los Angeles for Cleveland, it’d seem that also means that Phil Jackson will be coaching another season for the Lakers.
