Michael Malone has not yet named anyone to his coaching staff. But two strong candidates who could join him were spotted during the Sacramento Kings’ pre-draft workouts this morning and afternoon. Chris Jent and Roy Rogers were in attendance for today’s pre-draft auditions in Sacramento. Jent is in the running to become Malone’s lead assistant while Rogers would likely lend his expertise as a big man coach. “There’s nothing formal on that,” Malone said when asked if hiring both Jent and Rogers was a done deal. ”Obviously, I have some guys that I’m definitely looking at. I’m gonna try to hire the best staff I can and when we’re ready to announce that, we’ll let you guys know.” Cowbell Kingdom
