SALT LAKE CITY – Utah Jazz assistant coach Lamar Skeeter is reportedly leaving the team to join the Charlotte Hornets staff under the recently hired Charles Lee.

Lee, a former assistant for the Boston Celtics, was named the Hornets coach on Thursday.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski first broke the news of Skeeter’s departure Friday afternoon.

“The Charlotte Hornets are hiring Utah Jazz assistant Lamar Skeeter as the top assistant for new coach Charles Lee’s staff, sources tell ESPN,” Wojnarowski wrote. “Skeeter spent a decade with Jazz under Will Hardy and Quin Snyder, elevating from a development coach into a lead assistant.”

Lamar Skeeter Reportedly Leaving Jazz

Skeeter is one of the longest-tenured members of the Jazz’s staff having joined the team as an assistant coach under Snyder during the 2014-15 season.

Before Utah, Skeeter had served as an assistant under Mike Budenholzer with the Atlanta Hawks, and as a member of Alex Jensen’s coaching staff with the Canton Charge in the NBA D-League.

Skeeter spent his college career playing at Walsh University in Ohio.

Last summer the Jazz welcomed Chad Forcier, Rick Higgins, Scott Morrison, and Mike Williams to Hardy’s coaching staff.

Evan Bradds, Jason Terry, Chris Jones, Sean Sheldon, Andrew Warren, Matthew Temple, George Rodman, Anthony Beaumont, and Becca Ward were also members of the Jazz’s staff in the 2023-24.
