The Philadelphia 76ers are looking at prospective head coaches for next season in the wake of Doug Collins resigning from the position, and according to CSN Philadelphia, Golden State Warriors’ assistant Michael Malone is “high on their list.”

Malone came to the Warriors along with Mark Jackson in 2011, and has been pivotal in molding the franchise into the playoff team that they are now. He is the highest-paid assistant coach in the NBA, and is the one who draws up the plays during timeouts in late-game situations.

Prior to joining the Warriors, Malone had 10 years of experience in the NBA as an assistant.
