Brian Shaw interviews with Clippers brass and has dinner with owner

Christian Petersen

No word on how the dinner between Donald Sterling and Brian Shaw went but Broderick Turner of the LA Times is saying that the meeting between Shaw and the Clippers went "great".

Per Turner's report:

Brian Shaw was the first of four candidates Monday to present his case to the Clippers as to why he should be the team's next head coach.

Shaw, the associate head coach of the Indiana Pacers, met with the Clippers' front office at the team's facility and left an impression on team President Andy Roeser, vice president of basketball operations Gary Sacks and director of basketball administration Eric Miller during his interview with them, said two NBA executives who were not authorized to speak publicly on the situation.

"I think it went great," one of the executives said about the meeting.

Shaw then was scheduled to have dinner with Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Monday night.

No contract offer was made to Shaw, the executives said.

The one tidbit that stood out for me was this but we should not read much into it given that it has been said publicly that the Don likes Lionel Hollins and George Karl:

The Clippers have scheduled an interview with formerCleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Scott, who still has one year left on his contract that pays him $4 million after he was fired by the Cavaliers, coached Chris Paul when both were with the New Orleans Hornets.

One executive said Sterling "likes" Scott as well.
