Alvin Gentry On Hot Seat?

Alvin Gentry is on the hot seat after the Pelicans’ woeful start to the season, Sam Amico of AmicoHoops.net reports (Twitter link). Several league coaches and GMs told Amico they believe Gentry will be let go in a matter of days. The Pelicans are 1-9.

Gentry is on a relatively cheap contract worth a total of $13.75MM over four years. That figure includes a $4MM team option on the final season. Last March, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported Dell Demps expressed reservations on numerous occasions last season about the previous year’s decision to hire Gentry, but Demps denied the report.

Gentry was hired to take the next step with the Pelicans after they claimed the final playoff spot in 2014/15, but the team was slowed by a slew of injuries last season and underachieved. New Orleans went 30-52 last year and finished 12th in the Western Conference.

  7. Total garbage. Gentry is just an okay coach, but Demps is a bad GM. If you fire Gentry, then Demps should be right behind him.
