The search continues for the next head coach of the Sixers and you can scratch one name off the list. That would be Mike Malone. Wojo was the first one to report it:
Golden State’s Mike Malone has reached an agreement in principle on a four-year deal to coach the Sacramento Kings, sources tell Y! Sports.

The highly regarded Malone got a deal worth more than $9 million if the fourth year team option is picked up by the Kings.
So what does this mean? To me at least, it seems as if the Sixers are waiting on Brian Shaw. It was reported last week that Hinkie flew from the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago to Indianapolis, where the Pacers were getting ready for their Eastern Conference Finals match-up against the Heat.
Well, the Pacers have 2 games left (at most). We should find out shortly after that. Shaw is also a candidate for the Clippers and Pistons job. So yeah, Shaw should go to the Clippers.
