The Sacramento Kings are looking for a new head coach after relieving interim boss Alvin Gentry of his duties. 

Gentry was appointed on a temporary basis in November after Luke Walton was dismissed following a 6-11 start to the season. 

The Kings went 24-41 under the former New Orleans Pelicans coach and finished 12th in the Western Conference, missing the playoffs for a 16th straight season. 

It was confirmed on Monday that Gentry would not return to the Kings for the 2022-23 campaign. 

General manager Monte McNair said in a statement: "The entire Kings organisation is grateful for the leadership of Alvin Gentry, who stepped up when he got the call mid-season. 

"We appreciate his leadership on and off the court."
