Source: The Warriors are more than likely going to have to replace two assistant coaches, not just one. Mike Malone taking the Kings' head-coaching job creates one vacancy and Bob Beyer is a candidate either to go with Malone to Sacramento or join Steve Clifford, the Bobcats' new head coach. Beyer and Clifford know each other well from their days in Orlando as Magic assistant coaches. Don't look for the Warriors to be in a rush to fill the vacancies; assistant coach Darren Erman is in charge of the summer-league team, so the team is adequately covered as far as offseason responsibilities.

Now that the Kings have a coach, they can begin to figure out whom to scuttle as they build their roster. Speculation begins with big man DeMarcus Cousins, the Kings’ talented but sometimes destructive franchise cornerstone. A source told Sporting News that the team’s new ownership group has not made a decision on Cousins just yet, and that Malone’s input will be key in the decision. The source said speculation on Cousins’ future likely comes from teams hoping to trade for Cousins on the cheap. Sporting News
