Gentry took the head coach position after the front office dismissed Luke Walton in November. The veteran coach led the Kings to a 24-41 record over the final 65 games of the season. The Kings (30-52) finished the season at 12th in the Western Conference. According to Woj, Gentry and Kings are negotiating a role in the front office that will be made official later this week. Gentry has one year remaining on his contract with the Kings.
