Sacramento has fired coach Mike Malone, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
Despite star DeMarcus Cousins missing past nine games, Malone didn't meet win-loss expectations of ownership, sources tell Yahoo.
Assistant coach Ty Corbin will take over as interim head coach, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
GM Pete D'Alessandro hadn't hired Malone, and had never been strong bond between them. Still, ownership's expectations are unrealistic.

No incident, from what I'm told, just no patience for a group that was doing good things but had lost its centerpiece (Cousins)since Nov. 26
