CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Brian Shaw may be close to becoming the Cavaliers next head coach but it is not done yet.According to sources, Shaw had a positive interview with the team Monday and early Tuesday and he emerged as the frontrunner to replace Mike Brown. Shaw has impressed the Cavs with not only his focus on defense and knowledge of how the triangle offense would work with LeBron James, but also his confidence in dealing with players because of his 14-year history in the league.But Cavs sources said Tuesday morning that Shaw had not been formally offered the job and was not close to finalizing a contract with the team.AOL Fanhouse and the Los Angeles Times reported that Shaw was close to accepting the job. The Times quoted Shaw's agent, L.A.-based attorney Jerome Stanley, as saying Shaw was close to an agreement.The Cavs do want to have a coach in place by Thursday, the start of free agency, and it is likely they want to make the decision today. The signs point to Shaw being that man.

"In Cleveland's situation, in my mind, the personnel would be ideal," Tex Winter said. Contrary to popular opinion, Winter didn't invent the triangle - or triple-post - offense. He learned it while playing for Sam Barry at USC and perfected it during more than 60 years of coaching in college and as an assistant to Jackson in Chicago and Los Angeles. Winter is not alone is his assessment. Former Cav Ira Newble, now learning the system with the Lakers, and former Chicago Bull Brad Sellers agree with him."If you take LeBron [James] off the ball, he's going to be unstoppable because he's cutting, he's slashing, he's running off curls," Newble said. "He's too big to be guarded. It would take him off the ball and make it tough to double team him ... and if he's not double teamed, he's going to score every time. He can score with a double team. Without a double team, there's nobody on the floor who could guard him. I think that offense would definitely help him."
"...the center is sort of the apex in the triangle," Winter said. "That's really our priority pass, our first pass, in the offense in order to penetrate the defense."
