Mike Malone Reportedly A Candidate For Clippers’ Coaching Job

Warriors assistant Mike Malone is on the short list of candidates for the Clippers’ head coach job, along with Nate McMillan and Byron Scott. Malone, who’s also a top candidate for the Kings’ coaching vacancy, knows Chris Paul from New Orleans, where Malone was the lead assistant on Monty Williams’ staff. Per ESPN: “The first time Chris Paul referenced something his old coach in New Orleans, Monty Williams, used to say, we smiled. The second time, we took note. After that, well, you kind of got the message. Paul had a good experience with his coaching staff in New Orleans. Williams being the head coach, Michael Malone being his lead assistant. It’s no wonder then that Malone’s name has floated to the top of the early lists of candidates for the Clippers job, now that Vinny Del Negro has officially been let go. The lead assistant for the Golden State Warriors has always been regarded as a shrewd tactician, but the extra warm fuzzy feelings from Paul don’t hurt his case. Williams, for one, thinks his time is overdue. ‘You don’t know what it takes to get a job. It’s not just about basketball all the time. But I just hope, I hope that he gets a job soon,’ Williams told ESPNLosAngeles.com. ‘I know he really wants to do it, and I know he’ll be a really good head coach. The tough part is knowing I gotta coach against him because I know he really knows his stuff.’”

    For some odd reason, I was really really hoping there was a typo and they actually meant Karl Malone.

    Mike Malone equals CP3 staying and Donald Sterling being cheap. Good hire for Clips instead of going with retread they go with new fresh face.
