Michael Jordan & Charlotte Bobcats - NBA Legend Wants to Buy Team, Report

Feb 16, 2010

Is the next stop in the NBA for Michael Jordan as a majority owner? According to USA Today, Charlotte Bobcats head coach Larry Brown said Monday night that Jordan has told him he's doing all he can to buy majority control of the Bobcats from owner Bob Johnson.

The paper notes Jordan currently has a "unique role" in Charlotte as "he runs the basketball operations, he's not officially a team employee and rarely attends practices or games."

Still, the coach says he really is looking forward to being a team owner. "He said he's doing his best to put himself in a position to get the team," Brown said after practice. "He wants it badly."

There is a possible snag. Former Houston Rockets executive George Postolos has made inquiries as well, according to the Associated Press, and it's possible if Postolos gets control Jordan would no longer have a role with the team.

However, according to Fanhouse.com "Jordan is said to have a window of time in which he can match a prospective buyer's bid."
