As it was whispered when the Kings decided not to keep Alvin Gentry as a coach, he who had taken the interim after the dismissal of Luke Waltonhe will integrate the front office of the franchise.
According to Shams he will become vice president of basketball engagement. Well right now we don’t know exactly what he will do in this role, but Shams reports that he is in the Chicago combined draft with the GM Monte McNair. We can think that he will participate in the evaluation of the players.
This will prevent the Kings from firing him when he still had several seasons left on his contract.
Alvin Gentry has joined the Sacramento Kings in a full-time front office role as Vice President, Basketball Engagement, sources tell me and @sam_amick. Gentry finished season as interim Kings coach and joined GM Monte McNair and front office at the NBA Draft Combine this week.
