Default Warriors GM Rod Higgins nearing deal with Charlotte

Quote:
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. --
Charlotte Bobcats managing partner Michael Jordan is considering old friend Rod Higgins for the vacant general manager's role.

Two sources familiar with the situation said Higgins is the preferred candidate and a deal is close at hand.

Higgins, 47, is the Golden State Warriors' GM, and the Bobcats got permission to interview him during the weekend.

I know Don Nelson and Chris Mullin held most of the influence in the Warrior organization this past season, so I'm wondering exactly what did Higgins do? Hopefully this will be a good hire.

I dunno. The Warriors franchise was completely unknown until this year. The only reason they made the playoffs was because they completely screwed the Pacers in getting Jackson and a few other guys.

Question Re: Warriors GM Rod Higgins nearing deal with Charlotte

So what, exactly, does a GM do? It seems that BB's job was mainly as head coach and it wasn't apparent that he did anything else. Is the GM job anything that matters?

General Managers do budgets, trade, draft, sign players, etc.

Will BB be able to contribute anything significant to the team in his new position?

(I'm a bit behind with catching up on all of the news because of being away for a couple of weeks).

BB is the executive vice president which means he has a say in the basketball operations of the franchise, so yeah, he'll contribute.
