NEW ORLEANS (AP) - The Hornets and general manager Jeff Bower have “mutually agreed” to part ways immediately.

The Hornets announced Tuesday that Bower was leaving after spending more than 14 seasons with the club in various capacities. He was the club’s GM since 2005.

Hornets President Hugh Weber says it was in the best interest of the club to part ways with Bower at this time and that a search for a general manager is already under way.

Bower took over as head coach nine games into last season after the firing of Byron Scott, leading the Hornets to a 34-39 record that left the club at 37-45 overall and out of the playoffs. He went back to the front office during the offseason, when Monty Williams was hired as the Hornets’ new coach.
