Jame Borrego is finalizing a deal with the Charlotte Hornets to become their next head coach.

Borrego was an assistant coach for the Spurs from 2003 until 2010 and again from 2015 until now. Borrego was briefly interim head coach of the Magic when he replaced Jacques Vaughn. 

Borrego has also served as an assistant coach for New Orleans under Monty Williams.

The Hornets parted ways with Steve Clifford this offseason under new general manager Mitch Kupchak.
