Alvin Gentry has been added to the Los Angeles Lakers' list of head coaching candidates.

Gentry spoke with Mitch Kupchak on the phone last Friday and will have an interview on Wednesday.

Gentry has also interviewed for the head coaching job with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz.

The Lakers became more interested in talking with Gentry after speaking with several coaches who are very high on him, especially his ability to coach offense.
