One of the most shocking moments of the 2014-15 NBA season was when the Kings fired head coach Mike Malone. At the time of his firing, the Kings were only half a game out of a playoff game.
Luckily for Malone, the Nuggets saw something in him and have hired him as their new head coach. Via Yahoo Sports!:
Michael Malone has reached agreement on a four-year deal to become coach of the Denver Nuggets, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The fourth year of the deal is a team option, sources said.
Malone made the strongest impression with general manager Tim Connelly and president Josh Kroenke in meetings with Denver’s management and overtook interim coach Melvin Hunt to win the job, sources said.
