EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Lakers guard Brian Shaw is retiring after 14 NBA seasons to take a front office position with Los Angeles.

The 37-year-old Shaw won three NBA titles in four seasons with the Lakers. The team planned a news conference for Wednesday to announce Shaw's new position.

The 6-foot-6 guard was drafted by the Boston Celtics in 1988 out of University of California-Santa Barbara.

He played with Boston, Miami, Orlando, Golden State, Philadelphia, Portland and Los Angeles, and averaged 6.9 points in 943 NBA games. He averaged a career-best 13.8 points for Boston in 1990-91, his second season.

It was about time he retired, he got his championship rings like every player dreams. With limited minutes last year, I doubt he'll get any more with Payton coming to LA. I think it was a good choice to retire.

As much as I dislike him as a player, he's such a bonehead, he seemed to pull the Lakers collective arses out of the fire almost as much as Horry.
