NBA Rumors: Info on Wilson Chandler, Kings' Coaching Search and More

Published by Bleacher Report on Sat, 20 Dec 2014


The Denver Nuggets seem to have a few players that teams are interested in acquiring.Per Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated,"Teams continue to look at Denver as an appealing trade partner. The [Cleveland] Cavs have been trying to acquire centerTimofey Mozgov, and league sources said the [Oklahoma City]Thunderhave inquired about swingmanWilson Chandler."There's no doubt the Cavs could use a defensive presence in the middle like Mozgov. Cleveland has allowed 100.1 points per game this season, and teams have feasted in the paint. In Wednesday's 127-98 loss to the Atlanta Hawks, Cleveland surrendered 58 points in the paint.Mozgov is a solid rim protector who is averaging 1.3 blocks, 9.3 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. He'd be a nice addition to Cleveland.The Thunder might be in the market for a more offensive backup for Kevin Durant. Once the reigning MVP sits down, the Thunder don't have a viable offensive force to turn to.When Durant went out of Friday's thrilling 114-109 loss to the Golden State Warriors, OKC could only depend on Russell Westbrook to score. Chandler is scoring 14.8 points per game this season.His ability to knock down the three and score off the dribble would be an asset.Sacramento Moving Quickly to Replace Mike MaloneThe Sacramento Kings fired Mike Malone on Sunday night. Tyrone Corbin has been the interim coach, but per Sam Amick of USA Today,"after calling the game courtside for ESPN, [Mark] Jackson had a lengthy meeting with Mullin, Kings general manager Pete D'Alessandro and franchise centerpiece DeMarcus Cousins inside the 'Chairman's Lounge' where they had requested that arena workers and others give them some privacy."There's no confirmation that the meeting was to discuss the coaching vacancy, though, all signs would point to that.Malone was fired for what was described as style differences, according toAdrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Ironically, Jackson was fired from the job at Golden State because of personality conflicts.Per Amick: "Jackson's personality rubbed ownership and management the wrong way, and they grew tired of the silliness that took place on his coaching staff."If this is indeed a match, it'll be interesting to see if the styles and personalities are aligned properly.Follow Brian Mazique on Twitter.
