The Brooklyn Nets are in the market for new assistant coaches after parting ways with three members of their staff. One name that has emerged as a possible replacement is former Charlotte Hornets head coach, James Borrego.

Sources claim that Borrego has drawn interest from several teams, including the Nets, Rockets, and Pelicans, to return to the bench as a top assistant. Borrego has worked closely with both Nets coach Jacque Vaughn and new Rockets coach Ime Udoka in the past. He served as Vaughn’s top assistant with the Magic for three seasons and replaced him as interim head coach in 2015.

Borrego also worked under Gregg Popovich in San Antonio, where he and Vaughn spent four seasons together. Borrego’s head coaching experience in Charlotte could be a valuable asset for Vaughn, who took over the Nets job midway through last season.

The team currently has four assistant coaching positions to fill, and Borrego’s familiarity with both Vaughn and general manager Sean Marks could make him a top candidate for the job. As the Nets prepare for their first full season under Vaughn’s leadership, bringing in experienced assistant coaches could prove crucial to their success. It remains to be seen whether Borrego will land the role, but his name is certainly one to watch in the coming weeks.
