Pelicans pick up team option on Alvin Gentry
He’s coaching here for at least another 2 years

@wojespn: David Griffin has believed Alvin Gentry's style of play fits the personnel he's assembling with Pels - and now commits to another year on his coach...

I'm fine with this. Probably will be one of the first times Gentry will be able to coach here without looking over his shoulder

She's been in New Orleans for the past few days.

She's also been reporting that the Pelicans are looking for a veteran big man with that 4th pick. Given that she's here and broke this coaching news, I tend to believe she's probably right about the big man thing.

re: Pelicans pick up team option on Alvin Gentry
Gross. So gross. Another year of Gentry and a veteran big man for the fourth overall pick....Jesus let’s just undo all good Will from this trade.

And Gentry, who now has the ear of Gayle Benson, is going to push as hard as possible to trade all our assets for win now players to keep his job in these next two years.

How exactly is two years (at most) of Gentry and adding a young vet catastrophic to this team?

I'm excited, but I'm sure a few posters won't be thrilled about this news

re: Pelicans pick up team option on Alvin Gentry
Well Gentry is an incredible loser of a coach. His career winning pct is atrocious. He’s consistently bad no matter what team he’s coaching for and who’s on said team.

Secondly, why make a fricking win now trade with the fourth overall pick? A player who presumably will already be making big money or want big at the same time Lonzo and Ingram will. And what veteran big man is going to the move the needle more than just into mediocrity?

We already have the vets in ball, Ingram, and Jrue. Our next asset from the trade likely won’t best until 2022. Trading 4 for an above average big man reeks of trying to make the playoffs as 7 seed for the next 3 years over trying to win a title in the next 6-7.

It’s the same exact trade Demps made time and time again and fricked us every time.

I can’t wait to see Lonzo and Zion in Gentry’s system.

Would love to hear who you’d prefer to replace Gentry because the litter of coaches this year were horrendous

It makes sense. Why would you have him coach Zion for 1 year then fire him? Give him a chance to prove he can work with the new GM and within the new system over 2 years. If not, goodbye, new coach for the next 5+ years after that of Zion.

If Gentry can make rondo look like old rondo and make Elfrid look like a solid pg, he can do it for Lonzo
