Report: Brian Shaw named Nuggets coach

Looks like at least one name can come off the list of potential candidates to be the next Celtics coach.

Brian Shaw, whose agent told the Globe earlier Monday that Shaw would be interested in the Celtics job but had not been approached about it by the team, has accepted the Denver Nuggets’ coaching position, the Denver Post reported.

Shaw, who played for the Celtics from 1988 to 1992 after they drafted him in the first round in 1988, was an associate head coach for the Indiana Pacers last season.
