According to Benjamin Hochman of the Denver Post, Brian Shaw has agreed to become the new coach of the Nuggets.
Shaw most recently worked as an assistant under Frank Vogel in Indiana and has also worked on the staff of Phil Jackson when he was with the Lakers.
Shaw has been a hot name in many coaching searches the past few offseasons and last year turned down an offer to coach the Bobcats, preferring to wait to be in a better situation.
While the signing answers one question for the Nuggets it opens up many others.
Does Shaw try to run the triangle? Will his offense be post-up based like his stops in Indiana and L.A.? Can he shape the Nuggets into a better defensive team without the likes of an Andrew Bynum or Roy Hibbert on the backline? Who will round out his staff?
