According to Peter Vecsey of the New York Post, Orlando Magic management prefers that former Magic guard and current Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw be their next Head Coach.
Here’s something else to throw out there: Could Phil Jackson be financially romanced to coach Howard? If not, maybe he’d find it fascinating to manage a front office and roster for the first time? If so,would he appoint Brian Shawas coach?
Sources tell me Shaw, the Pacers associate coach and a former Magic player, is the preference of the DeVos family. Would the former Lakers head coach and his longtime trusted assistant try to reunite with Bynum?
Another highly conceivable candidate, could he shake free from Milwaukee (one year left), is Scott Skiles, who also played in Orlando and remains a DeVos family and local fan favorite.
