03:04 AM ET 06.12 | The Brooklyn Nets appear to be nearing the end of their head coaching search and have reportedly narrowed the list of finalists to just two names. According to FoxSports.com, the Nets are down to Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw and former Nets guard Jason Kidd as the two guys they want leading the team into the future. One name makes great sense and the other still feels like a gimmick. Either the Nets are really that desperate for a backup plan or Jason Kidd is honestly that well-suited for the job, but Brooklyn believes he's an equal option with Shaw as he's on the shortlist of guys they'll hire. The report doesn't specify who is ahead of whom on the list but common sense and logic suggest that Shaw is the guy they'll ask first and Kidd will clean up whatever mess is left. There have been reports though that indicate it's the other way around and Kidd has come out of nowhere as the favorite for the job, but we won't truly know until one is offered the job.
