Warriors Assistant Mike Malone Reportedly in Line for Kings Coaching Job

According to multiple reports, Golden State Warriors assistant coach could very well take over for Keith Smart in Sacramento. Per the Contra Costa Times: “It appears Warriors assistant coach Michael Malone, who has been in the running for head coaching jobs each of the last three offseasons, appears to be in line for the Sacramento job. The NBA announced Tuesday the Board of Governors approved the sale of the Kings to the group lead by Vivek Ranadive, minority owner of the Warriors. But the new ownership group has already been scouting new people to lead its franchise, so GM Geoff Petrie and head coach Keith Smart are expected to be out. Malone is reportedly a strong candidate to replace him, with one report calling him a ‘lock.’ Warriors sources confirmed the reports that Malone is a serious candidate. One source said it wasn’t official but ‘it looks like it’s heading that direction.’”
