The 46-year-old Shaw, who won three titles as a Laker and served as the team’s assistant from 2004 until 2011, is currently employed as an associate head coach with the Indiana Pacers.
Los Angeles’ hierarchy is actively attempting to find a way to relieve Shaw of his obligations to the Pacers.
Jackson, the all-time winningest coach in league history with 11 crowns, also wants legendary small forward Pippen to help him lead the organization to its 18th Larry O’Brien NBA Championship Trophy this June.
The 47-year-old Pippen, a seven-time NBA All-Star and eight-time All-Defensive First Team selection, captured six titles with Jackson as a member of the Chicago Bulls.
Shaw possesses a bright coaching mind and Pippen could teach Lakers players countless defensive tactics.
The stars are aligning in Tinseltown and Phil Jackson, Brian Shaw and Scottie Pippen seem destined to bring the Los Angeles Lakers franchise another title banner this spring.
