Like Son Like Father? Sacramento Kings Agree


First the Sacramento Kings hired Mike Malone as Head Coach. And today it has been announced that Mike Malone’s father will be serving as one of his assistants.

Brendan Malone has 27 years of NBA experience. He was the first Head Coach of the Toronto Raptors, and also was part of two championship teams with the Pistons under head coach Chuck Daly.

The Malones are just the second father-son, or son-father duo to work together in the NBA. The first was Bill and Eric Musselman. The Malone duo also worked together for the New York Knicks for 2003-04.
