Warriors, Gentry Reach Agreement In Principle

10:47pm: Agent Warren LeGarie tells Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports that Gentry has agreed in principle to join the Warriors’ coaching staff. The deal will run for three seasons (Twitter links).

9:36pm: Gentry’s choice will ultimately come down to money and security, tweets Arash Markazi of ESPNLosAngeles.com, who adds that Gentry had a deal in place with the Lakers last summer before the Clippers offered him more money.

8:25pm: The Warriors are expected to make a lucrative offer to convince Alvin Gentry to leave the Clippers and become a highly-paid associate head coach in Golden State, sources tell Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports (Twitter link). Gentry served the same role under Doc Rivers in Los Angeles last season.

Earlier tonight, David Pick of Eurobasket.com (via Twitter) heard that Gentry would be heading to Golden State as an assistant. The 59-year-old coach has been a target for a few head coaching vacancies around the league recently, garnering consideration from the Lakers, Cavaliers, and Jazz.  Earlier this month, we relayed the Warriors’ interest in hiring Gentry as an associate head coach.

It’s worth noting that the Warriors had previously targeted David Blatt for an assistant role on Steve Kerr’s staff; though now with Golden State reportedly zooming in on Gentry, it seems clearer that Blatt is currently deep in the process of becoming the next head coach in Cleveland while the Warriors have moved on to plan B.

    Is this a response to Cleveland moving on Blatt, or was he set to fill a different position?

      i’m sure it’s a plan B. it might be a better option at this point. Gentry brings such grittiness for our defense… it’ll be important to be a top 3 defense on top of being the #1 offense in the Association… that sounds like the Spurs to me.

      time for the student to become the master here with Kerr at the helm
