Nets Coaching Search Updates

Updated: June 7, 2013

The Brooklyn Nets are taking their time in finding a new leader to coach this ready made team and names change hourly.  The NBA Finals has started and the Nets are one of now three playoff teams still without a coach along with the LA Clippers and Denver Nuggets.

The news yesterday that Denver had let the Coach of the year George Karl go sent shockwaves through the NBA for a few hours and got reporters scurrying to see what teams would be in play for the elite coach.  The Clippers look to be interested in Karl at the moment as well as the Memphis Grizzlies and news came later that Brooklyn would not be a team with interest.

The Nets seem to be focused on Indianan Pacer assistant Brian Shaw and more information is being circulated about their desire to go with a “new era” coach and not a coaching re-tread.

The Clippers seem to be the biggest competition for Shaw at the moment as the Nets brass is away in Italy until next week so no interview can take place until then.
