Alvin Gentry just received a two-year contract extension on Thursday that will keep him with the Pelicans through the 2020-2021 season.
Gentry led the Pelicans to 48 wins and the second round of the NBA playoffs this season, which is impressive given Demarcus Cousins' season-ending injury. In this extension, Gentry will get a guarantee for the 2019-2020 season and a performance-based contract for the 2020-2021 season. This extension is not surprising given the success Gentry had this season, yet he will only look to improve on that success as he is coaching a young Anthony Davis who has not yet reached the prime of his career.
