Mike Malone to Interview For Los Angeles Clippers Head Coaching Job


The Los Angeles Clippers are ready to turn their attention to the head coaching search and it looks like a number of coaches will be candidates for the job. Most of the names that have been connected to the Clippers opening are candidates with a lot of experience, but the most recent name to surface is one of the top assistants in the game. According to reports, Los Angeles will interview Golden State Warriors top assistant Mike Malone for the vacancy.

Per Sam Amick of  USA Today:

Malone’s relationship with Paul is certainly something that can help him land the job, but it will all come down to whether or not he impresses team owner Donald Sterling when the two men meet.

Who do you think should be the next head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers? Sound off in the comments section and share your thoughts.

    It’s “Whom do you think?” I think it should be Vinny del Negro. He did a great job with a lot of new personnel. Team needs better foul-shooting from Jordan and Blake, and back-ups for them to help handle the Memphis bigs. Team needs to keep its guard and small forward personnel as is, and not deplete them. The Clippers are “entertaining” as is, with good team spirit, and that’s important to keep. Getting to the playoffs should be considered a successful season. Apparently Paul wants Vinny out, – can’t see a reason otherwise. One player does not make a team.

      Del Negro has no offensive system to implement, doesn’t understand team defense, can’t make adjustments against better-coached teams and is routinely out-coached. Lionel Hollins made him look like a Jr. High School coach during the playoffs…with Del Negro just substituting anyone and everyone into the game, to make sure everyone got a chance to play and all of the parents went home happy. He sucks.
