Michael Jordan Has Final Say on Sam Vincent’s Future


Charlotte Bobcats owner Bob Johnson believes first-year coach Sam Vincent is the right man for the job.

But Johnson said Tuesday the final decision on whether Vincent will return next season rests with part-owner and basketball operations chief Michael Jordan.

"The definitive answer will come from Michael, but my position is, I think Sam did a credible job," Johnson said.

The Bobcats are 28-46 and are all but certain to miss the playoffs in Vincent’s first season as an NBA head coach.

Johnson said he believes Vincent has overcome early growing pains to do a "credible job." [ESPN]
