I hope Patrick Ewing gets a head coaching job, I think he deserves a shot to prove he can be a coach in the NBA. I know he is a bit desperate, but if offered the Bobcats job he needs to think really hard about it, because going to the Bobcats can take years off your life.
The Bobcats are working to set up a meeting with Ewing once the Magic are finished in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
Ewing is a close friend of Charlotte owner Michael Jordan, and several sources believe the Hall of Fame center will turn out to be a serious candidate for the opening. Charlotte will make pitches to Golden State Warriors assistant Mike Malone and former Portland Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan, but will likely hire its next coach from a pool of candidates like Ewing who have been less in demand for head-coaching jobs.
