Jay Hernandez has agreed to join the coaching staff of James Borrego with the Charlotte Hornets.

Hernandez spent last season as an assistant coach with the Orlando Magic.

Hernandez originally joined the Magic as assistant coach/player development prior to the 2014-15 campaign, where he was responsible for on-court skill development, as well as game scouts. Hernandez established and collaborated with various departments to implement a return from injury protocol that incorporates analytics with an on-court simulation. He has also been responsible for organizing and running on court pre-draft workouts for the last three seasons.
