Cross Mike Malone off the List, He's Headed to the Kings

If you thought Golden State Warriors assistant coach Mike Malone was gonna take the Los Angeles Clippers gig, cross him off the list. He’s headed to Sacramento according to Yahoo! Sports:

Malone brings a fresh face to what’s looking to be a new era for the Sacramento Kings as they’ve finally gotten from up under the Maloofs as the sale to Vivek Ranadivé‘s ownership group has been approved. The Kings have the 7th overall pick in the upcoming draft, so Malone will begin work immediately.

As for the Clippers head coaching candidates, this move likely makes Byron Scott he favorite as he has ties to both the city of Los Angeles and star Chris Paul. My dark horse candidate would be Memphis Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins.
