The Hornets have hired Mitch Kupchak, 63, a former University of North Carolina star and Los Angeles Lakers executive, to be the team’s new general manager.

Kupchak was an all-American at North Carolina in the 1970s. He has more than three decades of front office experience, including 17 years as the GM for the Lakers before he was fired last year.
