PHOENIX (AP) -- The Phoenix Suns say the team and coach Alvin Gentry have "mutually agreed to part ways."

Gentry had coached the Suns since replacing the fired Terry Porter at the All-Star break of the 2008-09 season, compiling a 158-144 record. His 2010 squad, led by Steve Nash, advanced to the Western Conference finals.

But Nash left and the team underwent what has been a disastrous rebuilding effort. The Suns have lost 13 of 15 and four straight at home. Their 13-28 record is worst in the Western Conference.
