Brian Shaw has interest in the head coaching job of the Orlando Magic if it becomes available.
Shaw was fired this week by the Denver Nuggets before the end of his second season with the franchise.
Karl replaced George Karl and was a bad fit.
Shaw played three seasons with the Magic (1994-95 to 1996-97) before retiring after the 2002-03 season.
He served as an assistant coach with the Los Angeles Lakers and the Indiana Pacers.
