Report: Cleveland To Hire Former Laker (And Celtic) Brian Shaw

With or without LeBron James, Brian Shaw is looking like the next Cleveland Cavaliers coach.

A source told FanHouse the Lakers assistant is close to finalizing a deal to join the Cavaliers just one day before James' much-anticipated free agency begins. Shaw was a finalist with former New Orleans and New Jersey coach Byron Scott after Michigan State coach Tom Izzo declined the team's offer earlier this month.

Also in bigger news today, according to unconfirmed sources, LeBron James had a southwestern style omelet for breakfast, possibly tipping his hand to either Dallas or Houston as his Free Agent destination of choice. Joe Johnson, as expected, took his leftovers.
