Brian Shaw turned down an offer to coach the Charlotte Bobcats, who currently hold the NBA’s worst record.

"I want to be in a situation where I have a chance," Shaw said. "Usually when you come into your first head coaching job, you don't get to dictate what the situation is going to be. But you want a chance and an organization that has a game plan going forward that's sustainable and where you have some pieces of value where you can put things together and get on the fast track."

Shaw also interviewed for vacant head coaching positions during the offseason with the Portland Trail Blazers and Orlando Magic.

"I'm perceived as just a triangle guy," Shaw said. "I have conversations with Phil [Jackson] and I said, 'I thought working for you and playing for you would be my biggest asset going into interviews. Actually it's been my biggest liability.'

"We've laughed about it. He's said to me on more than one occasion, 'It's best for you to distance yourself from me and our system.' "

Shaw has spent the past two seasons as the Indiana Pacers' associate coach, partly serving as a mentor for head coach Frank Vogel.

"When he gets an opportunity," Vogel said, "he's going to be a coach of the year candidate every single year."

Ouch, that stings a bit. Brian Shaw will be a good head coach some day, it's a shame that he doesn't believe that the Bobcats have a plan going forward, because I certainly believe in Cho and co.

Who can blame him, the only guy that wanted to coach the Bobcats was a college assistant.

Therefore highlighting why The Bobcats are by far the worst franchise in the NBA.

The team cannot attract coaches, free agents bc there is nothing to build on here or very little at the moment.

It is going to take a perfect storm just to get the team potentially playoff ready..and its a 3 yr process if all goes well.

Well I'm fine with Brian Shaw saying no. Why get a good coach when the goal this season is to get that pick?

Don't buy it. He is still an assistant coach for a reason. What did he turn down Portland and Orlando as well? We have a few first round picks and cap room. Why turn that down? Most winning teams on the "right track with a chance" are not looking for new head coaches.

The same reason theres a fire Coach abc thread in this forum with this development team.

He didn't say he wanted a winning team.
