Malone, Shaw Not in Contention for Magic?
For weeks, NBA insiders presumed that Golden State Warriors lead assistant coach Michael Malone and Indiana Pacers associate head coach Brian Shaw were the favorites to become the Orlando Magic’s new head coach.
Not after Malone and Shaw fell out of the mix Sunday.
Magic general manager Rob Hennigan informed Malone that Malone is no longer being considered, Malone’s agent, Steve Kauffman, told the Orlando Sentinel. Meanwhile, a source close to Shaw said that Shaw withdrew from the search.
