The Los Angeles Lakers are scheduled to interview Alvin Gentry on Wednesday for their head coaching vacancy, according to the Los Angeles Times.
Gentry is an assistant with the Los Angeles Clippers. He also served as an assistant under Mike D’Antoni with the Phoenix Suns. D’Antoni resigned as Lakers coach after the regular season.
Gentry has also been connected with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Utah Jazz and Memphis Grizzlies jobs. However, Dave Joerger decided Sunday to remain the Grizzlies’ coach.
The Cavaliers plan to interview Gentry on Friday and the Jazz met with him last week.
NBA.com reported that the Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings are interested in hiring Gentry as a lead assistant.
Gentry was head coach of the Phoenix Suns from 2009-13. In the 2009-10 season, he guided the Suns to the Western Conference finals with Steve Kerr as general manager. Kerr was recently hired to coach the Warriors.
