AP sources: Gentry, Pelicans agree on 2-year extension

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Two people familiar with the decision say Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry has agreed to a two-year extension running through the 2020-21 season.

The people spoke to The Associated Press Thursday on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not been announced.

The Pelicans already had informed Gentry going into the playoffs that the club would exercise his option through next season. Now he’s under contract two additional seasons under the extension first reported by ESPN.

Gentry has gone 117-138 in three seasons, including this season’s playoffs, when the Pelicans swept Portland before losing a second-round season 4-1 to defending champion Golden State.

New Orleans missed the playoffs in Gentry’s first two seasons, during which the team dealt with a spate of injuries to key players.
