Walsh ‘Disappointed’ Nets Passed on Shaw
The Nets head coaching search eventually filtered down to two candidates, Jason Kidd and Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw, said general manager Billy King.
In actuality at the end, there was only one, Kidd, even while Shaw went through a lengthy interview on Wednesday.
“I’m disappointed because I did not speak to Billy directly but I did give him permission to talk to him and wrote him a note letting him know what I thought [about Shaw],” said Pacers president of basketball operations Donnie Walsh Thursday. “He’s going to be a great head coach. Great head coach.”
