Charlotte Hornets Considering Making History with Potential Hire of Lindsey Harding as Head Coach

The Charlotte Hornets will turn a page this offseason, with the move of Steve Clifford from the sidelines to the front office. In search of a new head coach for next season, the North Carolina franchise is prospecting and could make history. Never has a woman been a full-time coach of a team in the NBA, despite interviews with Becky Hammon et Teresa Weatherspoon, in particular, before being preferred to male technicians and taking their talents to the WNBA. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Hornets have scheduled an interview with Lindsey Hardingcurrently at the head of the Stockton Kings G-League team where she has just been voted best coach of the year.

Harding, 39, played 9 years in the WNBA and was an assistant to three different coaches in Sacramento between 2019 and 2023, before taking care of the Mexican national team and, until recent months, the Kings antenna in the G-League.

Other candidates will be auditioned to succeed Steve Clifford, but it is already interesting to see Charlotte thinking about this possibility of making Lindsey Harding a pioneer, where we expected Becky Hammon when she was Gregg Popovich’s assistant at San Antonio, or Kara Lawson, the current coach of Duke, member of the Celtics staff between 2019 and 2020.
