Hornacek now has a coaching staff to fill out. One guy that you can't help but wonder about is Karl Malone. Hornacek's Jazz teammate, the Hall of Famer, is constantly pitching himself as a coaching candidate, telling The Tribune over the weekend that he would be "interested" in replacing Hornacek on the Jazz bench.
Here's a thought: What about Malone joining Hornacek in Phoenix?
Hornacek laughed, then said: "Karl always wants to coach. I'll call him and see, but I can't ever imagine Karl - after two weeks he'll want to go fishing. It would be great."
What about Stockton. Sounded like maybe his kids were grown and he might be interested a while back. Dantley? A defensive coach like Mussleman?
