Charlotte Hornets Look to Turn Franchise Around with New Defensive-Minded Coach Charles Lee

Los Charlotte Hornets want to get out of the depression as a franchise (21-61, third worst record in the Eastern Conference) fishing in the one that works best. It does not seem like a complicated approach and it is the one they applied to sign Charles Lee as his new coach. Because Lee is the ‘engineer’ behind Joe Mazzulla’s Boston Celtics defense and it’s his new coach looking for an awakening.

“They are character and ability to connect with players Implementing a different culture will help us build a competitive team seeking long-term success,” explained Jeff Peterson, Charlotte’s vice president of operations. “It has a pedigree that produces championships. “Extensive knowledge of basketball at a global level and experience in the NBA,” he added.

But who is Lee? He is one of the best defensive assistants in the NBA after working for the Atlanta Hawks, Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics. In the proud greens he helped design the best team since the last ring (2007-2008) reaching a record of 64 wins and 18 losses. In their section, defense, the Celtics are the second team that concedes the least per 100 possessions (110.6), the one that grabs the most rebounds (35.6), the one that places the most blocks (6.6) and the one that places the least fits after conceding losses (13.3).

In Charlotte he will seek to implement that style to win. The reality is that Lee has won and in his 10 years as his assistant he has reached 510 victories and only 291 defeats (.637 as a percentage). Charlotte, on the other hand, has only had two positive seasons in the last ten years: 2015-16 (48-34) and 21-22 (43-39). The rest, a drama.
