Source: Gentry joining Kings as associate coach

7:55 PM ET

Former New Orleans Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry has agreed to a deal to become associate coach with the Sacramento Kings under Luke Walton, a source told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Gentry will join a Kings team less than two months after he was dismissed following a five-season run leading the Pelicans. His New Orleans teams went 175-225 but were often beset with injuries.

His 175 victories with the Pelicans are the second most all time in Hornets/Pelicans franchise history, trailing only Byron Scott. He left as the only coach in franchise history to have a winning record (5-4) in the playoffs.

He’ll join a Kings team coming off a 21-31 season in Walton’s first season with the team.
