Leading up to tomorrow’s Summer League opener, Kings coach Michael Malone has no plans to work the sidelines.
Chris Jent is the coach and Malone will watch from the stands
In the last few practices, Malone has taken a step back, allowing the assistants to handle more of the hands-on work in practice.
“I wanted Chris and Dee (Brown) and all the other coaches to step in,” Malone said. “I did a lot of the stuff early, implemented a lot of stuff, introduced our philosophy on both sides of the ball. But this is a great opportunity for my assistant coaches to coach and get experience being a head coach on a summer league team. You may see me down there in a timeout but I’m going to sit in the stands with my father (assistant coach Brendan) and take my notes.”
