Hornets have already started securing permission to interview candidates for the franchise’s vacant general manager position.
Former Lakers’ general manager Mitch Kupchak remains a front-runner to ultimately receive an offer to replace Rich Cho, but the Hornets are engaging in a wider search process and plan to start an initial round of conversations with candidates as soon as this week. Charlotte has received permission to speak with Sixers VP of player personnel Marc Eversley, Rockets executive VP of basketball operations Gersson Rosas and Heat assistant general manager Adam Simon. It remains to be seen what direction the franchise will take after the hiring process is completed.
