Alvin Gentry and the New Orleans Pelicans have agreed upon a two-year extension through the 20-21 season.

The Pelicans had previously exercised their team option on the 18-19 season for Gentry before the playoffs began.

Gentry will receive a raise for 18-19, a guarantee for 19-20 and a performance-based deal for 20-21.

Gentry signed an original four-year deal with a team option in 2015. 

The decision to extend Gentry gives the Pelicans some level of stability surrounding Anthony Davis.
