Michael Jordan Happy with Larry Brown as Coach of Bobcats

The Bobcats aren’t pushovers for the Raptors or anyone else these days. In picking Hall of Famer Larry Brown as the club’s third head coach in as many years, basketball operations boss and part-owner Michael Jordan has a man known to implement quick fixes.

"We’ve struggled to find our identity," Jordan said. "I think the city is very hungry for a successful franchise. I don’t want to put too much pressure on Larry, but I think this is the type of atmosphere that he enjoys."

With a win over New Orleans on Friday, the Hornets are 2-3 and getting some production out of six-foot point guard D.J. Augustin, who was chosen ninth overall in the 2008 NBA draft.
