Kwame Brown, Michael Jordan reunited again

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is bringing back what’s considered his worst move as a basketball executive: Kwame Brown.

The Bobcats on Monday agreed on a one-year deal with Brown for the veteran minimum of $1.3 million. Agent Mark Bartelstein says Brown will sign on Tuesday.

Jordan was running the Washington Wizards when he selected Brown straight out of high school with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2001 draft. The big man turned out to be a major disappointment.



Jordan was later fired by the Wizards. He joined the Bobcats as a part owner in 2006, and bought the team outright this spring.

Now Jordan hopes the 6-foot-11 Brown will add depth. He averaged 4.5 points and 3.5 rebounds with Detroit last season.
