As the Clippers' head coaching search continues, reports surfaced on Thursday that Golden State Warriors assistant coach Mike Malone will interview for the job. Malone, who has been on the head coaching radar for the last three offseasons and is currently rumored to be a target of the Sacramento Kings, has a history with Chris Paul, dating back to his days as an assistant coach with the New Orleans Hornets. The connection will likely improve Malone's chances as the Clippers look to re-sign Paul to a long-term deal. Paul is a huge piece to our team moving forward, Blake Griffin said following the team's first-round exit. Hes going to know we want him back and would love for him to re-sign and keep moving forward with this franchise." According to a report by the Los Angeles Times, the Clippers are aiming to hire a coach by the June 27 NBA draft, and possible candidates include former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Byron Scott, Memphis Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins, San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Mike Budenholzer, Indiana Pacers assistant coach Brian Shaw, ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy and Phoenix Suns coach Alvin Gentry.
