Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw was at the Clippers’ practice facility Monday meeting with the front office. Shaw is expected have dinner with Clippers owner Donald Sterling on Monday night.
The Clippers then have a scheduled interview Tuesday with former Cleveland Cavaliers Coach Byron Scott. 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.
Memphis Coach Lionel Hollins will come in for an interview with the Clippers on Wednesday. Hollins has been given permission by the Grizzlies to speak with other teams despite his contract not expiring until the end of the month.
