Charlotte Hornets hire Boston Celtics assistant Charles Lee as new head coach

The Charlotte Hornets have found their new head coach. The team announced Thursday morning that it has hired Boston Celtics assistant Charles Lee, who will join the team once Boston’s playoffs are completed.

Lee worked as an assistant in the NBA for ten years.

“We are pleased to welcome Charles Lee as head coach of the Charlotte Hornets,” said Jeff Peterson, Hornets executive vice president of basketball operations. “His high character and ability to connect with players while creating a culture of accountability will serve us well as we build a competitive team built for long-term success. Charles possesses a championship background with a wide range of basketball knowledge and NBA experience, has a great work ethic and is a great communicator. He shares our vision for this organization and I look forward to working with him to build something special here in the Carolinas.

Before joining Boston’s coaching staff, Lee was an assistant coach for the Milwaukee Bucks from 2018 to 2023. He started his coaching career with the Atlanta Hawks in 2014.
