REPORT: Alvin Gentry Won’t Return As Kings Coach

The Sacramento Kings have reportedly decided not to bring back interim coach Alvin Gentry and are opening a search for their new head coach, per League insider Adrian Wojnarowski.

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.

Gentry owns a 534-639 record over his 18-year career as an NBA head coach. He’s spent time with the Heat, Pistons, Clippers, Suns, and Pelicans before coming to Sacramento.
