Nuggets to Hire Mike Malone as Coach

maloneThe Nuggets coaching search has finally come to an end. It will not be Mike D’Antoni after all. Instead, it will be Mike Malone, who was surprisingly fired by the Sacramento Kings last season.

Malone inherits a decent team in Denver who may have underachieved recently.

Malone, who went 39-67 over parts of two seasons after the Sacramento Kings hired him following the 2013 season, was the lone candidate to interview twice for the Nuggets.

He replaces Melvin Hunt, who took over on an interim basis for Brian Shaw, who was fired in early March. Besides Hunt, former Phoenix Suns, New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni also was a candidate for the position.
