Yahoo! Sports: Brian Shaw withdrew from consideration for the Cleveland Cavaliers’ coaching job on Wednesday, clearing the way for the Cavs to pursue a deal with Byron Scott.

Shaw said he never received a formal offer from the Cavs, but didn’t feel comfortable with the team’s Thursday deadline to make a hire.

“I know they have a timeline to hire a coach and I wasn’t able to meet that timeline,” Shaw told Yahoo! Sports. “I didn’t want to hold things up. It’s a great organization.”

Shaw wouldn’t comment on why he took issue with the timeline, but sources close to him said he wanted more clarity on whether LeBron James(notes) planned to return. Shaw also could become a candidate for the Los Angeles Lakers’ coaching job should Phil Jackson retire.

    ESPN is reporting that Byron Scott is very close to becoming the next head coach of the Cavs. Which means that B-shaw will either coach the lakers or will still be Phil’s assistant. Either way it looks good for the Lakers.
