CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- A person familiar with the situation says the Bobcats have met with Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw about their vacant head coaching position.
The person spoke to The Associated Press Friday on condition of anonymity because Charlotte has not made its list of candidates public.
Shaw won five NBA championships with the Los Angeles Lakers - three as a player and two as an assistant coach.
He's the ninth known candidate to interview, joining former head coaches Nate McMillan (Portland) and Jerry Sloan (Utah), assistant coaches Michael Malone (Golden State), Stephen Silas (Charlotte) Nate Tibbetts (Cleveland), Dave Joerger (Memphis), Patrick Ewing (Orlando) and Mike Dunlap (St. John's).
Ewing has since been ruled out.
Bobcats executive Rod Higgins said Wednesday the team will hire someone "in a couple of weeks."
