With Michael Malone's stunning firing the other day, it hasn't taken long for the rumor mill to begin churning out candidates for the next Kings coach.  Former Warriors coach Mark Jackson added to those rumors on Tuesday night with a post-game meeting with Pete D'Alessandro, Chris Mullin and DeMarcus Cousins after Jackson called the game for ESPN.
