As we all know by this point, Brian Shaw’s scheduled interview with Billy King about the Nets head coaching vacancy went on as planned this morning, despite multiple media accounts, including from our own Josh Newman, saying that Kidd’s deal as Nets head coach was “very close” and that he is expected to sign a three-year deal to become the team’s next head coach.
But here’s the rub: We still have no idea whether Shaw still covets the Nets job, whether he will become the next coach of the Los Angeles Clippers, or why he would fly to Brooklyn for an interview for a job that was already filled—even if unofficially.
We do now know, however, that Shaw’s interview with the Nets is said to have gone well.
Lengthy Brian Shaw and #Nets brass meeting was "very good." So now we wait—

If ownership decided on Kidd already, why interview Shaw? Having deal on table w/ Kidd actually puts pressure on Shaw to make quick decision—
