Golden State Warriors assistant Mike Malone is scheduled to interview for the Charlotte Bobcats head-coaching vacancy on Tuesday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Malone will meet with Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins and general manager Rich Cho.

Malone is considered one of the NBA’s elite head-coaching candidates. He was the runner-up for the Warriors’ job that went to Mark Jackson last year.
