News: Malone pleaded no contest Tuesday to his DUI charge stemming from an April arrest, but did agree to a pretrial diversion program for the cocaine possession charge he received in the same incident, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: The diversion program will help Malone's chances of getting the felony drug charge dismissed if he completes the required criteria. Malone's pending legal issues have made teams reluctant to extend a contract offer just yet, but several clubs are said to be interested in the 34-year-old. Once he completes the program and completes community service for his DUI charge, Malone should latch on with a team.(RotoWire, )

News: Malone was "baffled" when officers found cocaine in his back pocket when they pulled him over in April, reports the Tampa Bay Times. "I asked where it came from," officer Andrew Visser wrote in his report. "And he said he was just shocked." Impact: Malone's next court date is Aug. 19, and he could work out a plea on the DUI and possession charges. He said he has no idea where the cocaine came from because he had worn the same pants for three days. Malone is an unrestricted free agent, and his agent, Mike Liut, said a couple of teams have expressed interest in the winger. "I think he'll land somewhere," Liut said. "It's just a matter of where and when."(RotoWire, )
