Alvin Gentry will join Doc Rivers' coaching staff with the Clippers, source tells ESPN Los Angeles' Ramona Shelburne.
Gentry was reportedly choosing between assistant jobs with Mike D'Antoni and the Lakers or Rivers after interview for head coaching jobs over the last two months. We think Gentry chose wisely considering Rivers has a much stronger foothold with the Clippers than D'Antoni has down the hall. Wed, Jun 26, 2013 02:49:00 PM

Alvin Gentry will have his second interview with the Grizzlies later this week.

The Grizz are expected to complete their search for Lionel Hollins' replacement by the end of the week. Assistant Dave Joeger is considered the front-runner, but Gentry is strongly in the mix. From a fantasy perspective, Gentry is the more desirable candidate as a proponent of free-flowing offense.

The Grizzlies came away from their interview with Alvin Gentry extremely impressed by the former Suns coach, a source tells CBS Sports' Ken Berger.

Gentry interviewed with the Grizzlies on Friday. He was expected to meet with owner Robert Pera and CEO Jason Levien. Gentry got a bit of a short stick in Phoenix, stuck with an extremely undermanned roster operating under a strict budget. Berger reports the Grizzlies will interview former Nuggets coach George Karl on Monday and then assistant Dave Joerger will follow Tuesday. Joerger is considered the favorite for the job, while Karl has reportedly expressed a strong interest in the position. It remains to be seen if Friday's interview will vault Gentry to the top of the list.

Alvin Gentry has spoken with the Clippers and "expressed his interest" in the head coaching job, two executives told the Los Angeles Times.

Gentry has publicly said a couple of times that he'd be interested in coaching the Clippers, but it's not looking like the feeling is mutual. He is a potential candidate, but he's on the outside looking in with the team taking a closer look at other candidates like Brian Shaw, Byron Scott and Jeff Van Gundy. Gentry has a standing invitation to join Mike D'Antoni's Lakers staff as an assistant.
