Brian Shaw close to reaching deal with Cavs

According to an unidentified source, the Cleveland Cavaliers are close to finalizing a coaching contract with Lakers assistant coach Brian Shaw.

The 43-year-old Shaw has been an assistant coach with the Lakers for the last five seasons; last week he was given permission by the franchise to begin talks with Cleveland.

Shaw met with Cavs team owner Dan Gilbert on Monday and is reportedly the man that will be Cleveland’s coach before the start of free agency, July 1.

The Cavs have kept their coaching search in house, at least have tried, since the public negotiations with Michigan State’s Tom Izzo.
