    Mike Malone and Chris Mullin to Sac?

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports...owner/2193325/

    That could lead to some of his current co-workers coming along with him. If Kings coach Keith Smart is not retained as is expected, then Warriors assistant Michael Malone – a former assistant in Cleveland and New Orleans who sparked dramatic defensive improvement at each of his NBA stops and has interviewed for several head coaching vacancies – is expected to be a candidate.

    Longtime Kings general manager Geoff Petrie is not expected to be retained either after the team's 28-54 campaign, and one possible successor who would certainly bring name recognition was on hand on Thursday night. Warriors legend Chris Mullin, who called Game 6 as a television commentator for ESPN, was in the team's front office from 2004 to 2009 and said he would be open to discussing the situation in Sacramento. He has met Ranadive several times but said they had not yet discussed the possibility.

    "I definitely would (be interested in the job)," he told USA TODAY Sports. "But you know, it's something that's got to be the right fit. It's gotta be – they need my expertise…I'm not one of those people to go solicit it. But a guy like him, if he called me and he needed me, I'd love that."
    I know this is probably more Sac forum worthy, but you guys should be a bit concerned that Malone could be on his way out. IMO the Warriors need to keep him at all costs.

    Yeah, we need him, badly. But it's only a matter of time before he moves on, he's more than capable of taking on a head coaching job. Good luck to him whatever he decides to do.

    No way Chris Mullin abandons us though... right?

    I could see both go. It's a good situation for both of them. New ownership, new identity.
    Don't forget about Dre.

    Can we package Mark Jackson into the deal for a player named later?

    Malone can't save that train wreck. Kings have a bunch of pieces that don't fit together.

    Cousins is their only top notch talent, but he's a moron.

    hes getting paid head coach money to be an assistant. there would be no point in going. i think he has enough authority here to be happy.

    It's not all about money. The opportunity to be a head coach will be difficult to pass up. He applied for the 76ers job a couple of weeks ago. It's not even a case of will we lose Malone, it's just a case of when will we lose him.

    Naw.. I'm not sure he knows how to motivate players.

    And getting the most out of players without the playbook is more important

    Motivating can only you get you so far if you don't know how to coach. Malone is a much better coach. I'd have rather had Jeff van gundy but that's another story.

    JVG? The guy that said Curry would suck at the pro level? That JVG?

    Coach Jackson is very underrated. Malone is a great coach but people need to stop giving him all the credit, especially on D.
