The Charlotte @hornets have formally offered their GM post to Mitch Kupchak and are confident they can soon seal a deal with the longtime former Lakers executive, according to league sources.— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) April 2, 2018
Kupchak helped construct four championship rosters as the Los Angeles Lakers GM from 2000 to 2017. Prior to being GM, Kupchak won three NBA championships as a player with the Lakers before retiring in 1986. From 1987 to 2000, Kupchak served as the Lakers' assistant GM under Jerry West.
The Hornets (34-44) parted ways with GM Rich Cho on Feb. 20. During his six-plus seasons as GM, the Hornets struggled to improve and made the playoffs only two seasons.
