James Borrego Rumors
A month into the job, Charlotte Hornets general manager Mitch Kupchak said Friday no major roster makeover is in the works. “There is no master plan to blow up this team right now,” Kupchak said during the team’s news conference to introduce new coach James Borrego.
That was conveyed to Borrego in the interview process. As Kupchak put it Friday, “When he was hired, the understanding is he is going to coach the players (already) on this team and the players we bring into this team going forward.” Borrego said he was comfortable with that, saying he anticipates most of the improvement between now and training camp in late September will be “internal.” “My vision here,” Borrego said, “is to maximize this roster as it stands.”
