SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Of all the lessons Mike Malone has learned from his head coaches in over a decade as an NBA assistant, the problem of unrealistic expectations was obviously one of them.

Malone was introduced Monday by new Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadive (VIHV'-ehk rah-nah-DEE'-vay) as the first head coach in the new era in California's capital city and he made sure to avoid a mistake that plagued his former boss in Golden State.

Malone said: "We're not going to guarantee the playoffs in the first year like we did in Golden State that's for sure."

Mark Jackson took the Warriors to the playoffs in his second year instead. Malone's immediate goals for rebuilding the struggling Kings are less tangible than wins and losses.
