After being let go by the New Orleans Pelicans, Alvin Gentry has joined Luke Walton's coaching staff at the Sacramento Kings.
Alvin Gentry could not guide a team containing number one pick Zion Williamson to the playoffs and subsequently lost his job.
Rookie sensation Zion Williamson was on the bench down the stretch as the New Orleans Pelicans went down 106-104 to the Utah Jazz.
Zion Williamson's NBA debut excited coaches and team-mates alike at the New Orleans Pelicans.
Having reportedly traded Anthony Davis ahead of Zion Williamson's looming arrival, the Pelicans have picked up coach Alvin Gentry's option.
Alvin Gentry and the New Orleans Pelicans had plenty to celebrate as they secured the number one pick in the NBA Draft on Tuesday.
"There’s nothing wrong with AD. He’s a good, solid guy with good character. That’s the way I feel," Gentry told reporters Tuesday.
When asked about Davis leaving Thursday night's game with an injury, Gentry said, “Hey guys, I’m going to talk about the guys that played."
“Nobody was interested in playing, that’s what it looked like," Davis said after the Pelicans fell 118-88 to the Magic on Tuesday.
Alvin Gentry assumes Anthony Davis has not played his last game for the Pelicans but offered no assurances.
