Hornets to hire James Borrego as next head coach

The Charlotte Hornets will hire Spur’s assistant James Borrego as their next head coach as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Tuesday.

Borrego has served as an assistant for the Spurs, New Orleans Hornets and Orlando Magic. He started as an assistant video coordinator for the Spurs before being promoted to an assistant coach and then leaving for other opportunities. He returned to the Spurs this season.

In his time with the Orlando Magic, Borrego took over for Jacques Vaughn after he was fired and led the team to a 10-20 record in 2015.

Borrego and other Spurs’ assistants have been a hot commodity on the coaching market. He already interviewed for the New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns this offseason to be their new head coach.

The Hornets failed to qualify for the playoffs with a 36-46 record and were the 10th placed team in the Eastern Conference. Borrego will take over for Steve Clifford, who was fired in April.
