Former Hornets coach James Borrego sells Charlotte home for $2.8M

CHARLOTTE — The former head coach of the Charlotte Hornets has sold his home here, a couple of months after being let go by the NBA team following a disappointing season.

James Borrego and his wife sold their 4,609-square-foot home in Charlotte’s Mammoth Oaks neighborhood in July for $2.8 million, according to Mecklenburg County real estate records. The general warranty deed was filed with the county on July 15. That deed lists an address in Albuquerque, New Mexico — which is Borrego’s hometown — for the Borregos.

The property sold for more than its asking price and in less than two months after being listed for sale. It hit the market on June 1 at $2.65 million, according to Realtor.com.
