The Serbian Basketball Federation has hired Nuggets’ coach Mike Malone as a consultant for the Tokyo Olympics.
Serbia finished a disappointing fifth in the FIBA World Cup in China last summer, which means they need to go through a qualifying tournament for the 2020 Olympics. Kings’ assistant coach Igor Kokoskov will be the head coach of Serbia with Malone becoming the top assistant. It’s an interesting hire to say at least as Malone knows Jokic’s game as well as anyone.
