According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the New Orleans Pelicans have dismissed head coach Alvin Gentry after a disappointing run in the Orlando restart. New Orleans hired Gentry in 2015 off of Golden State’s coaching staff.

Ty Lue, Jason Kidd and Kenny Atkinson are expected to be prime candidates to fill the vacancy.
