BREAKING: Pelicans Choose Alvin Gentry As Next Head Coach, Per Report

The New Orleans Pelicans have found their replacement for former head coach Monty Williams, coming to terms with former Phoenix Suns head coach and current Golden State Warriors lead assistant Alvin Gentry, per a report by Marc Stein of ESPN.

Gentry’s 2009-10 Phoenix Suns averaged a league-best 110.2 points per game, going 54-28 and making it to the Western Conference Finals in the process.
