Coach Alvin Gentry, Pelicans agree on 2-year extension

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Alvin Gentry's ability to coach the Pelicans into the second round of the playoffs despite the mid-season loss of All-Star DeMarcus Cousins persuaded the club that Gentry deserved to be under contract beyond next season.

Gentry agreed on Thursday to an extension covering two additional years, running through the 2020-21 season.

"He did a tremendous job last season," Pelicans general manager Dell Demps said. "When we faced adversity, Alvin and his staff continually discovered ways to place the team in situations where we could be successful."
