The Nuggets fire Shaw after less than two years with the team. The Nuggets have lost six games in a row and have compiled a 20-39 record this season under Shaw. General manager Brian Connelly:
I want to sincerely thank Brian for his time with our organization. You won’t find a better guy than Brian and he is one of the brightest basketball minds I’ve ever been around. Unfortunately things didn’t go as we hoped, but we know with his basketball acumen that he has a very bright future ahead of him.
