Former Utah Jazz head coach Tyrone Corbin has reached an agreement to become the lead assistant for Sacramento Kings coach Michael Malone, a person with knowledge of the situation told USA TODAY Sports. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the hire had not yet been announced. USA Today Sports

Corbin — who spent the last four seasons as Jazz coach, the previous seven as an assistant under legendary Utah coach Jerry Sloan and 16 seasons as an NBA player — will join a Kings team that went 28-54 in Malone's first season. Malone's Sacramento tenure began with his father, longtime NBA coach Brendan Malone, as his lead assistant, but he left unexpectedly before the regular season even began. Assistant coach Chris Jent had assumed the duties last season and remains on staff. USA Today Sports

As previously reported, Adrian Griffin is on the short list of candidates still in consideration for the Utah Jazz’s head coach position. Not only that, but the Bulls assistant coach has impressed Jazz brass enough to merit a second interview, a source confirmed. Even while Quin Snyder has emerged as one of the lead candidates, a source told the Deseret News that Griffin has “a very, very good shot” of being named as Tyrone Corbin’s replacement. Deseret News
