As the search for a new head coach gets underway, the Charlotte Bobcats are going to hear from Alvin Gentry and Elston Turner about the gig. Per Turner Sports: “The Charlotte Bobcats will interview former Suns head coach Alvin Gentry next week for their vacant head coach job, according to league sources. The Bobcats will also interview longtime assistant coach Elston Turner, who was Gentry’s assistant in Phoenix before Gentry was fired early this season. Gentry, a North Carolina native who played collegiately at Appalachian State, had expressed interest in the Bobcats’ job last week. The Bobcats are looking for yet another head coach after firing Mike Dunlap following a single season. […] Turner hoped to be considered for the job after Gentry was fired, but he was passed over in favor of the Suns’ player development coach, Lindsey Hunter, who coached the rest of the season. The Suns, who also dismissed former general manager Lance Blanks after the season, have already given Hunter permission to interview with Detroit for its vacant head coaching job.”
