The Charlotte Hornets parted ways with James Borrego this offseason, which was unexpected after they signed him to a contract extension less than a year ago.

Sources tell Marc Stein of Substack that "player discipline on and off the floor" was one of the concerns from the front office.

The Hornets also were blown out in each of their Play-In games this season and last.

Borrego was hired as head coach of the Hornets in 2018.
