Michael Jordan promotes brother in Bobcats' front office
NBA legend and current Charlotte Bobcats majority owner and executive Michael Jordan promoted his brother, Larry Jordan, to be the team's next director of player personnel, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports.
The position was vacant for the past three years. Before that, Buzz Peterson held the role until he departed to become the head coach at nearby Appalachian State. Michael will defer to team president Ron Higgins in addition to Larry, who joins the staff in his new capacity after serving as the team director of special projects.
Big brother's basketball resume is impressive on its own merit, however. In addition to serving in the front office, Larry played professionally in the World Basketball League for the Chicago Express.
