For Higher or Worse, This Offseason Will Dramatically Change the Hornets’ Future

To say the end of the Charlotte Hornets’ season was a bit of a disappointment is an understatement. For the second year in a row, the Hornets were blown off the court in a play-in game, this time at the hands of the divisional rival Atlanta Hawks.

Subsequently, Hornets GM Mitch Kupchak made the decision to fire head coach James Borrego not even a full year after he extended his contract. Borrego had received some heat from the fan base throughout the course of the season for his rotations, managing LaMelo Ball’s usage, and keeping first round picks James Bouknight and Kai Jones down in the G-League for the majority of the season.
