The Charlotte Hornets are looking to remake their front office following another disappointing season and it appears that general manager Rich Cho will be one of the changes that the team makes.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Hornets are unlikely to offer a new deal to the current general manager and that the team is already targeting potential replacement candidates.
Former Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak is one of the top names under consideration, per Wojnarowski’s report.
The Hornets have posted a overall regular season record of 212-321 during Cho’s tenure, demonstrating his failure to put together a competitive team.
Coupled with the fact that Cho has financially compromised the Hornets with poor contracts that has a lot of money committed to the likes of Dwight Howard, Nicolas Batum and Marvin Williams, to name a few, it is not hard to understand why Charlotte is looking for a fresh start.
This isn’t the first time that Kupchak has been linked to the Hornets, who was linked to the team earlier this season by Yahoo Sports’ Chris Mannix.
