The New Orleans Pelicans have exercised the option on Alvin Gentry’ contract for 2020-2021.
“We couldn’t be happier to extend our relationship with Alvin,” David Griffin, the Pelicans’ executive vice president of basketball operations, said in a statement. “He is exactly the right coach at the right time for this franchise. As I have mentioned several times previously, the shared vision we have for the future of Pelicans basketball both on and off the floor will enable us to build a roster that fits both culturally and tactically.”
