Per Fletcher Mackel of WDSU:
Can confirm Alvin Gentry in NOLA for 2nd interview w/ @PelicansNBA Jeff Van Gundy also still very much in mix. @timkawakami @ESPNSteinLine— Fletcher Mackel (@FletcherMackel) May 30, 2015
Last off-season, the Utah Jazz interviewed Alvin Gentry twice before finally settling on Quin Snyder so it doesn't necessarily mean that Gentry is the Pelicans number one target. However, seeing him and Jeff Van Gundy in the news again does indicate they should be considered among the favorites for the open position.
When considering past performances, it's mildly interesting to see such polar opposites towards the top of the pecking order. On the one hand, Gentry is renowned for sitting on the sidelines of great offensive teams. Conversely, Van Gundy is known for creating stellar defenses.
