Only several hours after we learned that Brian Shaw withdrew his name from the Magic head coaching search, now there is word that Warriors assistant Michael Malone is also no longer a possibility for the job. Malone's agent told the Orlando Sentinel that he is no longer under consideration, tweets Josh Robbins.
Malone interviewed for the Charlotte job and expressed some interest in coaching the Blazers early in the offseason. Considered a top potential head coaching candidate, Malone has been an assistant for the Warriors, Hornets, Cavaliers and Knicks. With candidates for the Orlando vacancy dropping like flies, it is unclear what direction the Magic will go. What is clear is that they probably should do it soon before their options become more limited.
