Greensboro Swarm News Release

Charlotte Hornets President of Basketball Operations & General Manager Mitch Kupchak announced today that Greensboro Swarm head coach Jordan Surenkamp will return in his role for the 2022-23 G League season.

"We're excited to have Jordan return as the head coach of the Swarm," said Kupchak. "Jordan is passionate about player development and understands the important role it plays in our organization. He did an excellent job working with our young players and our new coaching staff during Summer League. I look forward to him continuing to work closely with coach Clifford to implement the Hornets style of play with the Swarm."

Surenkamp, who was named the third head coach in Swarm history prior to the 2021-22 NBA G League Season, was elevated to lead the Swarm after serving three seasons with the Hornets, including two as the team's head video coordinator. Before joining the Hornets, Surenkamp kicked off his career in professional basketball with the Brooklyn Nets (2017-18). His tenure with the Nets included head video coordinator duties for their NBA G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets.

Last season, the Hornets utilized their G League affiliate to provide extensive playing time several of their 2021 NBA Draft picks, including Kai Jones and JT Thor. Jones appeared in 24 games for the Swarm and posted averages of 18.3 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 31.6 minutes per game. Thor appeared in seven games for Greensboro, averaging 12.0 points 5.6 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in 27.5 minutes per game. Additionally, under Surenkamp's leadership two separate Swarm roster players (Cam McGriff and Xavier Sneed) received NBA call ups last year.

Season Ticket Memberships and Mini Plans are on sale now. Starting as low as $8 per game, memberships include some of the best benefits in the NBA G League. For more information, visit or call 336-907-3600.
