Multiple sources confirm they have granted Charlotte permission to interview assistant coach Michael Malone for their head coaching vacancy. Yahoo! Sports first reported the Bobcats will interview Malone on Tuesday.
Malone, considered one of the NBA’s top assistant coaches, was expected to be a hot commodity this offseason. Malone is under contract for two more years with the Warriors. But Golden State general manager Bob Myers acknowledged Malone would likely be a head coaching candidate this offseason.
Charlotte fired Paul Silas last week after the Bobcats finished 7-59, registering the worst win percentage (.106) in NBA history.
