04:40 PM ET 04.24 | Golden State Warriors assistant Mike Malone and Indiana Pacers assistant Brian Shaw are two candidates in the running for the Philadelphia 76ers head coaching opening. The search for a replacement for the departed Doug Collins is underway, and Malone's value has been watched as the Warriors have enjoyed a rise from a 23-43 team last year to a legitimate playoff contender this season, all despite few roster moves. While coach Mark Jackson has been in charge, much of Golden State's success is credited to Malone, the lead assistant and defensive specialist. Meanwhile, Shaw has long been considered an up-and-coming head coaching candidate. Since retirement from playing, Shaw coached on the Lakers' staff before joining the Pacers.
