The Sixers, according to a source, have contacted the Pacers' associate head coach about their vacant head-coaching position. Because the Pacers are in the playoffs, Shaw will interview for the position when the time is appropriate.
Shaw spent 14 years in the NBA as a player, including 12 playoff appearances, four trips to the NBA Finals and three NBA Championships. The 47-year-old is one of several names that have been tied to the Sixers, who are looking to replace former head coach Doug Collins.
After ending his playing career, Shaw became an assistant for legendary Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson. He was with the team from 2004-11 before joining the Pacers following Jackson's retirement.
