The New Orleans Pelicans have fired Alvin Gentry as head coach.

In Gentry's five seasons, the Pelicans went 175-225 although often beset with injuries.

The Pelicans are expected to consider Jason Kidd, Ty Lue, Kenny Atkinson, as well as Jacque Vaughn if he's not retained by the Brooklyn Nets.

David Griffin has a working history with both Kidd and Lue.
