Dell Demps Rumors

“There’s some feeling in the front office the record being what it is, the writing is on the wall,” the source said. “Might as well make a change in April and start searching. But is that really fair? Can’t you give Dell an offseason to get some shooters, give Alvin some time to remake the offense? They’ve at least got to give this playoff spot a run and that might buy more time. That’s sort of where it stands.”
Pelicans owner Tom Benson, enthralled by the move, offered his private jet, and Gentry and Demps went on an eight-hour, round-trip pickup with the last leg dedicated to establishing a connection that went deeper than basketball. Gentry told The Vertical he wanted to talk face-to-face with Cousins about life “because to me, the basketball part will work out.” He wanted to learn about Cousins’ family, about his mother, Monique, about his children, Amir and Vana, about growing up in nearby Mobile, Ala. And he wanted Cousins to take a reprieve from the dizzying emotional ride that he had undergone ever since he found out that, after nearly seven years, he was no longer a King.
