A new report indicates there are apparently two interesting California Golden Bearscoaching candidates. Both of these candidates have those solid Bay Area ties, and both are currently on Luke Walton’s Lakers staff.
Brian Shaw, Lakers associate coach: Shaw would be quite the candidate. He is the former coach of the Denver Nuggets for two years. Shaw has been an assistant coach with the Pacers(2011-13) and the Lakers (2003-11), winning two NBA titles as an assistant. He was also part of the Lakers three-peat as a player. Shaquille O’Neal considers Shaw his favorite teammate.
