Denver Nuggets head coach Mike Malone said he is interested in joining Serbia, but there is no official agreement yet.

“Right now I’m having some dialogue with Igor. We’ve had some great conversations. Nothing is official yet, but it’s something that I definitely have interest in.

The talks I’m having with Igor and the Serbian federation have nothing to do with Nikola. I can’t speak for Nikola.

I have no idea if Nikola Jokic will play or not play. […] I don’t want to put any added pressure on Nikola,” Malone told reporters per Mike Singer of the Denver Post.

The Serbian Basketball Federation had announced the addition of coach Malone as a consultant, yet the Nuggets head coach denied any agreement.
