Michael Malone had been pining for a backup point guard, but Sacramento Kings management had a different idea for their coach a year ago: Royce White. Here was the beginning of the end for this doomed partnership, a disagreement that widened the gulf between them.

“Pretty soon, they’re telling [Malone]: Why aren’t you putting him in the games?” one organizational source told Yahoo Sports. “That’s when it really started to get bad between him and the guys upstairs.”
