Grant Hill Wants Alvin Gentry Back

Grant Hill, who will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, appears to be making a case for both his return and that of interim coach Alvin Gentry in Phoenix.

"I’d love to play for Alvin," admitted Hill.

"It seems like in four years I’ve had four different coaches, so I’d love to play for Alvin next year but it’s a coaching situation. I’m not making ultimatums. But I think he’s shown he’s going to be the coach next year," he continued.

"It’s like, what are they going to do with the personnel? Are they going to blow it up and start over, or what are they going to do? I don’t think the team or management knows at this point. He’s more than capable and qualified."
