Hornets hiring Spurs assistant James Borrego as head coach

The Hornets narrowed their coaching search to Spurs assistant James Borrego and Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga.

Apparently, Charlotte chose Borrego.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
Borrego has worked under Gregg Popovich with the Spurs the last three years, still a strong implicit endorsement for any coaching candidate. In 2015, Borrego served as the Magicís interim coach. He didnít exactly impress in the most visible role of his career, but taking over a losing team mid-season is no easy task.

Heíll get a fresh start in Charlotte Ė though not an easy situation.

The Hornets arenít good enough to warrant clear playoff status, but theyíre also too capped out to simply upgrade the roster or rebuild. They might just be stuck.

Itís now on Borrego to help get them out of this purgatory.

If Charlotte is trying to win now, Kemba Walker is a nice start. The rest of the veteran roster Ė Dwight Howard, Nicolas Batum, Marvin Williams Ė is good enough to win moderately with the right breaks.

If the Hornets are rebuilding, thatíd likely begin with the return in a Walker trade. They also have their own lottery pick this year, Malik Monk and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

Itís just unclear which direction new general manager Mitch Kupchak will take the team. But we now know heíll do it with Borrego coaching.
