Sacramento Kings will introduce new head coach Mike Malone on MondayPosted by Inside Hoops
The Sacramento Kings will introduce former Golden State assistant Mike Malone as their head coach on Monday.
The news conference to announce Malone’s hiring will come three days after new owner Vivek Ranadive officially took control of the franchise from the Maloof family, a team official said on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made.
Malone replaces Keith Smart, who was fired Friday shortly after the sale of the team was completed.
Ranadive has been a minority owner the past three seasons of the Warriors, where Malone worked the past two seasons as an assistant under coach Mark Jackson.
