San Antonio Spurs assistant James Borrego is finalizing a deal to become the next head coach of the Charlotte Hornets, according to Adrian Wojnarowski‏ of ESPN.

Borrego has 15 years of NBA experience. He was an assistant in San Antonio under Gregg Popovich from 2003 through 2010, before joining the Hornets for two seasons and then moving onto the Orlando Magic. Borrego does have some head coaching experience as he served as the Magic’s interim head coach for 30 games after they fired Jacque Vaughn in 2015. He then headed back to San Antonio.

Charlotte finished last season with a disappointing 36-46 record, despite having one of the league’s highest payrolls.
