Alvin Gentry was ecstatic after the New Orleans Pelicans won the NBA Draft lottery.
Per ESPN, “They started calling out the numbers. We obviously got this seed sheet, and I am trying to look through it and find out our numbers,” Gentry said afterward. “I find the first number, then the second number and then the third, and I’m like, ‘Oh s—.’
“The fourth one comes up, I try to look at all our combinations and then they said, ‘The winner is the New Orleans Pelicans.’And I said, ‘F— yeah!’And then I said, ‘Excuse me, I’m sorry.'”
“Guys, the one thing you got to understand is, [Davis] is still on our roster,” Gentry said. “He is on our roster. All of that will take care of itself. I’m not worried about it. I know Griff has some plans to talk to him, and it will be fine.”
