Alvin Gentry would like to stay in Sacramento

With 30 wins on the clock this season, the Kings are consistent in their mediocrity. The last two seasons, they had finished with 31 successes (in shortened seasons), and above all, for the 16th consecutive year, there is no playoffs.

The leaders will still have to make choices and several coaches are already courted, including Mike D’Antoni and Terry Stotts. However, even if he is announced on the departure, Alvin Gentry does not want to leave his place.

“It’s obvious that I want to continue”assures the coach after this last game of the season, for NBC Sports. “I love being here and I think we’re on the right track. We have the right elements, the right people, the right medical staff. Winning is not impossible. »

Propelled “head coach” after 17 matches this season, to replace Luke Walton, Alvin Gentry has a record of 24 wins and 41 losses. In the past, in Detroit, Phoenix or New Orleans, he had always needed at least one season before then finding the playoffs and he knows that the road will be long in Sacramento.

“You don’t want to be good for a year and then go back”he announces. “We want to establish something that will last over time. For that, you have to play hard and make the playoffs. Then, the next step is to go far in the playoffs and try, in the end, to win the title. »

Will he have this chance, at the age of 67, to settle in the long term in California? “We will wait and see. I don’t make the decisions. No matter what happens, if it stops, I would have had two great seasons here. I loved the people. »
