Michael Jordan Tells Patrick Ewing He is No Longer Candidate for Bobcats Job

Even if he is disappointed now, in the long run this is the best news Ewing could have received.

As it turns out, the “Space Jam” reunion won’t be happening with the Charlotte Bobcats.

After an interview with Charlotte management, owner Michael Jordan personally reached out to Patrick Ewing to tell him he’s been eliminated as a candidate to coach the Bobcats, a league source told Yahoo! Sports.

Golden State assistant Mike Malone, ex-Portland coach Nate McMillan and Hall of Fame coach Jerry Sloan are among the most prominent candidates for the job.
