Pelicans owner: Club sticking with GM Demps, coach Gentry

NEW ORLEANS (AP) A second straight non-playoff season will not cost general manager Dell Demps and coach Alvin Gentry their jobs - at least not before the start of next season.

How much patience owner Tom Benson, who turns 90 in July, and Executive Vice President Mickey Loomis will have with the pair once the season starts is another matter.

Benson and Loomis announced their decision to stick with Demps and Gentry, who are both under contract through next season, in a written statement on Monday. Loomis said the club decided to retain the GM and coach after "a careful and thorough review" and represents "the best course of action as we move forward."
