Gentry to Warriors, Collison Reportedly Wants to Re-Sign

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

According to reports, Clippers assistant coach Alvin Gentry is leaving the team to join Steve Kerr's staff in Golden State. Additionally, Clippers backup PG Darren Collison is rumored to have accepted his player option for the 14-15 season.

Take it with a grain of salt.  Everything is more than a bit dubious at this time and I'm almost certain that nothing is official, but according to reports on twitter, the rumor is that Alvin Gentry is headed to the Warriors to join Steve Kerr's staff as an assistant coach.  It's uncertain why Gentry chose another assistant role elsewhere; either he got more money, wants to work with Steve Kerr, or wants to work with their roster/front office.  With Tyronn Lue also being pursued by other teams, and Kevin Eastman heading to the front office, Doc Rivers will need to begin searching for new assistant coaches for next season.

[Note by LJ Hann, 06/19/14 8:49 PM PDT ] It has now been confirmed by Marc Spears that Gentry will leave the Clippers for the Warriors, according to Gentry's agent.




Also, supposedly Darren Collison announced his intent to opt in on Power 106 Los Angeles today, but I haven't been able to find actual reliable quotes or audio from the announcement.  Maybe nobody actually listened to Power 106.

Hopefully, we'll have more as the evening progresses to confirm or deny the validity of these reports, but for now they are still uncertain.

[Note by LJ Hann, 06/19/14 7:47 PM PDT ] According to a new tweet from Arash Markazi, Darren Collison will opt out of his player option but hopes to remain with the team.  The Clippers can offer him more than he would have made in his option by using either the partial MLE, full BAE, or Collison's non-bird FA rights.
