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 representative has connected with Clippers and he is expected to interview with them soon. He was with Chris Paul in N. Orleans.

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.
