Chad Iske is leaving the Wizards’ coaching staff to join the Charlotte Hornets’ coaching staff under new head coach James Borrego, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Iske is the second assistant to leave Scott Brooks’ coaching staff this summer, along with Sidney Lowe who took the head assistant job with Dwane Casey’s new coaching staff in Detroit.
It will be interesting to see how Scott Brooks fills his new vacancy, since it’s unlikely he’ll be able to hire someone else from his immediate coaching circle, now that Robert Pack is back in the fold. Virtually every other assistant Brooks had in Oklahoma City has gone on to bigger positions or they’re already with him in Washington. So he’ll either need to promote up or hire from the outside.
