Hornets GM Kupchak Signs Multiyear Contract Extension

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Mitch Kupchak has signed a multiyear contract extension to remain the Charlotte Hornets’ general manager.

His contract was set to expire this summer. Kupchak told reporters on Thursday that “for better or for worse I will be here for the next couple of years.”

He would not say when the contract expires.

Kupchak will continue to lead the team’s search for a coach.

He said the team already has interviewed eight to 10 candidates and could speak with a few more over the next week or so.

He said he would like to make a hire preferably in the next two weeks and at the very least before the June 23 NBA draft.
