On NBA TV's "Game Time" Saturday, David Aldridge talked about the Nets coaching vacancy and said he thinks it's Brian Shaw's job if he wants it. And he added, get ready for the Triangle.
"Brooklyn is going to talk to Brian Shaw, the associate head coach at Indiana," Aldridge told Vince Cellini, Steve Smith and Greg Anthony. "They will not talk to George Karl. They may talk to Lionel Hollins, but I think that's Brian Shaw's job. I really do. I think he's the guy there. It's a good fit. He's been waiting for an opportunity to show what he can do,"
"What I have been told for weeks now is that Billy King really thinks the triangle will really be a good offense for that team. If you want the triangle, then Brian Shaw's your man."
Aldridge said that the Clippers also want to talk to Shaw, but intimated that Byron Scott's relationship with Chris Paul is likely to make him, not Shaw, the front runner there. The Nuggets are also likely to look at Shaw, along with Hollins, for that job.
Aldridge, asked about the high turnover rate among coaches, said that a lot of owners anticipate that under the new CBA, things will be more competitive and are becoming impatient and making changes earlier than in the past.
