Rudy Tomjanovich, who leaves Houston to begin his new coaching job with the Los Angeles Lakers this weekend, said he's confident that Karl Malone will stay with the team.

Tomjanovich said he met with Malone recently and believes the power forward, who went down with a knee injury in December, won't leave. "He wants to do it the right way. He is a man of principle," Tomjanovich, former coach of the Houston Rockets, told Houston television station KRIV on Wednesday. "He doesn't want to go out and not be 100 percent."

Malone, 40, has indicated if he doesn't recover fully from knee surgery he will retire. The league's second-leading scorer took a huge pay cut to join the Lakers as a free agent last year in search of his first NBA championship.

Hoefully Malone moves on to another team, the Lakers don't deserve him.

I take it as thought this is a "rebuilding year" for the lakers. Malone would like to go with a team best situated for a ring and that would be either T'Wolves or Mavs

Decent point, but I think that they would work around each other, with Karl as hungry as he is, and Tim the consummate professional. They would fit rather well together, I think.

I'd see Duncan at center, isn't that what he played in college?

Yeah, I'd say they are definately in the playoffs with Malone on the team. But that's not what he is looking for, he wants to be on a team with legitimate title hopes, and they just don't have that now. He's too old to be on a rebuilding team.
