Published June 26, 2009
Bobcats Managing Member of Basketball Operations Michael Jordan said that he “wants to be involved in any ownership group that would have controlling interest in the team,” according to Richard Walker of the GASTON GAZETTE. Jordan Thursday night made his first public comments about owning the team since reports surfaced last month that Bobcats Owner Bob Johnson was looking to sell the franchise. Jordan was “clear in what he hoped would be his future role.” Jordan: “I would like to put together a team to do that.” Jordan, who bought a minority stake in the team in June ’06, has “consistently stated he’d like to one day have controlling interest of the team.” Jordan has had controlling interest of basketball operations since he became a minority owner (GASTON GAZETTE, 6/26).
