A person with knowledge of the details says the Brooklyn Nets' coaching decision is down to Jason Kidd and Brian Shaw.
Kidd met with general manager Billy King on Monday and Shaw is expected to meet with the team Wednesday. The person tells The Associated Press that the team has just those two candidates.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because details of the coaching search are not being made public by the Nets.
Kidd just ended his playing career after 19 seasons and is looking to make the move into coaching. He led the Nets to consecutive NBA Finals in 2002 and 2003, the franchise's greatest success in the NBA.
Shaw is a respected longtime assistant who was with the Indiana Pacers team that reached the Eastern Conference finals and also worked previously for Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers.
The Nets have to replace P.J. Carlesimo, who finished the season as their interim coach after they fired Avery Johnson in December.
