The Charlotte Hornets announced that radio broadcaster John Focke will not return next season.

The Hornets suspended Focke on August 17th for using the N-word instead of "Nuggets" in tweet during the Nuggets-Jazz playoff game. 

Focke would apologize for the tweet.

"Since this is a personnel matter, the organization will not comment any further. The Hornets thank John for all of his efforts during the 2019-20 season," released the team in a statement.
