Utah Jazz legend Karl Malone is asking for prayers for former Jazz coach, Jerry Sloan.

Malone and fellow Hall of Famer, John Stockton, took part in a zoom call with other NBA legends from the 90s Sunday.

Malone made a reference to the Jazz coaching legend.

"Also I need to say this to everyone here, me and Stockton been talking a lot here recently, our coach Sloan is not doing well, so I want you guys to pray for coach Sloan."

Malone did not go into details about what exactly is ailing the 78-year-old Sloan.
