The Memphis Grizzlies are in the market for a new Lead assistant next to head coach Mike Fratello. That's because assistant coach Eric Musselman is now the NEW head coach of the Sacramento Kings.
Musselman was the first candidate to interview for the Kings job after Sacramento Fired longtime coach Rick Adelman last month. Musselman was also the only the candidate the Kings asked back for a second interview. A news conference is planned for tomorrow.
WNBA Monarchs Head Coach John Whisenant, and Golden State Assistant Mario Elie were the other hopefuls. Musselman was the only candidate with previous NBA Head Coaching experience, having led Golden State to a 14-game turnaround in 2002. He's been on the Grizzlies bench since 2004.
