Per ESPN's report...

The Los Angeles Clippers have identified Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw as their No. 1 choice to become the club's next head coach, a source told ESPNLosAngeles.com's Ramona Shelburne.

The Clippers previously had contacted Shaw about their vacancy.

In addition to Shaw, the Clippers have also contacted Jeff Van Gundy, Byron Scott and Alvin Gentry to gauge their interest in becoming the team's next head coach, according to league sources with knowledge of the situation.

Shaw also is a serious target for the Brooklyn Nets, NBA coaching sources told ESPN.com's Marc Stein and ESPN The Magazine's Chris Broussard. The Nets are expected to request permission to interview Shaw now that Indiana has been eliminated from the playoffs.
