Sacramento Kings name Alvin Gentry as interim head coach

After a few hours of speculation, the Kings decided on Gentry.

The Sacramento Kings have selected Alvin Gentry as the interim head coach. Sam Amick was the first to report the news.

Following the announcement that Luke Walton had been fired, there was speculation whether the Kings would pick Gentry or if they would select Doug Christie. Doug is a fan favorite but only has 17 games experience on an NBA coaching staff.

Gentry has a career head coaching record of 510 wins and 595 losses, a slightly better career winning percentage than Luke Walton.

It should be noted that Gentry wanted some guarantees and benchmarks to take the job, which also includes a contract through next season.

I believe it’s quite standard for an assistant to leverage that position and improve the terms of his contract in such a situation.

Really not certain how much money is saved by letting go of Walton now – if that was the motive for keeping him in the first place. If money were the motive, then you’d probably commit to the guy at least through the trade deadline even if the team performed as badly as it did, right? The lack of foresight to not see how it could’ve easily gone tits up as it has, and that you may suddenly want to the fire guy makes the front office look short-sighted, volatile, and poorly managed.

Either fire Walton this past offseason, do a proper coaching search, and go into the season with someone you can get your team and base around – or – commit to saving dough with Walton. They’ve instead decided to be indecisive and be in this no man’s land where we hope Gentry comes to save the day taking over nearly a quarter of the way into the season? What’s the value in that?

Then again, maybe the motive was that McNair and/or Vivek truly believed that Walton was their guy. In either case, another gigantic front office failure.

Walton handed over the keys to Fox and got fired. Obviously it’s not the only reason, but it is one of them. Fox’s turnover in the final seconds at OKC was the end for Walton. I wonder if Gentry recognizes that and will do something about it, or just give us more catering to the max contract “star”.

This. The ownership part is true, the rest of it….as you say, is just Bill Simmons complaining.

This organization is an absolute joke, firing Luke Walton — yes I typed that and never thought in a million years I would — is proving it yet again.

Only the Sacramento Kings could make Luke Walton look shinier in exiting. They did him a favor.

Vivek’s the biggest problem w/the Kings, but I would call Hali a combo G (& he was BPA in his draft), there weren’t any good offers for Barnes last season (hopefully that changes this season) & the FO tried to sign & trade BB8 to the Bucks.

Sort of OT, copied from the other thread:

LOL, Carmichael Dave on Twitter Spaces asking why fans believe that they do not have the influence to demand a change for ownership.

The same Carmichael Dave who came to tell us at the old site that we shouldn’t have a billboard targeting Vivek.

Also why he never can earn a win. He is a poster of accepting mediocrity. In dreams of finally the kings becoming relevant. Word of advice to Carmichael Dave from the current super bowl champs “ no risk it, no biscuit”. Take a little more time to research your stuff so you can be confident, win or loss, in your decision. See if it sticks #mediocredave.

On Carmichael Dave, he entertains me, but ever since jay bilas clowned him years ago on sacramento being a joke I’ve been out on taking him seriously. He is optimistic to the point of being oblivious to call out the obvious. Vivek started bad with firing Malone, yet has never owned his mistakes that’s why we continue to see the doubling down of foolishness. If Carmichael Dave can finally call a spade a spade and just admit Vivek has been an awful owner on the basketball side, then I could somewhat take him seriously. Until then, just sounds like the cigarettes are destroying brain cells.

This move was sort of to be expected. It gives Monty some time to pick a permanent coach at the end of the season whether it be from within or from outside. Now if he can just do something with the roster.

I’m glad Walton is gone, but Gentry is a placeholder. There’s no coach we can hire that can succeed with this roster. This season is likely lost while the front office finally, FINALLY gets to work on the roster. A placeholder coach is fine for this season, until the team starts to build with players that can realistically form a winning team.

Gentry will set the plate for a Top5 pick.
How he keeps getting jobs as a HC is baffling. The man has a total of 3 winning seasons out of 17 as a head coach. The likelihood Gentry will improve this team 1 iota is very very slim.

if he comes back next year as HC, this team really is a mess.

Think of it like this: When he is inevitably let go he will have been the HC of 6 NBA franchises.

Wow, a person who just called into the Deuce and Mo podcast slammed TKH for pushing bad takes that are negative on the Kings. I thought, maybe, Deuce or Mo would stick up for TKH but they said nothing.

The caller gave D&M props for “keeping it real,” but they’re total homers most of the time. They said things about Walton today that they would have never said before.

Ha! Seriously, it was baffling. I expected D&M to say something like “hey we love the folks over at TKH” but they said nothing. I lost some of the small amount of respect I had for them. Plus, Mo nailed Walton in a way that she would have never done even up to last night.

Yeah she did. She said it was very possible that a few players liked Luke as a person but that the team may have NEVER backed his coaching philosophy and that he may have NEVER had the locker room from an X’s and O’s standpoint. (1:12:20 mark in today’s podcast)

Gotcha! Mo was really critical of Walton after the 1:12:20 mark. Frustrating because she said stuff she never would have said as late as last night. They’ve been hard on folks who’ve called for firing Luke during the podcast, now she unloads on him. Kind of a joke.

More like a typical Sacramento organization media take Spackler. If you’re not obligated to kiss their ass as often, you’ll call it a lot more like you see it.

If you knew Walton wasn’t the answer this past offseason, you shouldn’t have kept him.

If you were going to roll into the season with him, be prepared to deal with the lows that were inevitably going to come.

Lord this franchise is so stupid it’s amazing to me.

Not negative bad takes. It’s a little something called the truth. (Or at least presenting both sides)

The truth hurts-especially when you are on the opposite side….I’m looking at you Vivdreck and all
your media yes men.

As a reminder, the wins Luke rolled up in GS were while he covered for Kerr when he was out on medical leave. He was implementing Kerr’s plan, not his own.

It’s strange that a coach with Gentry’s lack of success was in a position to leverage anything, to be frank. I’d guess his salary is low, relative to other NBA head coaches, so dumping or demoting him after the season won’t be too big of a pill to swallow. As others havevpointed out, the org was already on the hook for Gentry until 2023.

And I would be remiss if I didn’t point out that he is not Luke Walton.
