LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Charlotte Bobcats are making it official today, naming Rod Higgins as their general manager.
Higgins will work with managing partner Michael Jordan and executive vice president Bernie Bickerstaff to run the basketball operation. Higgins comes from the Golden State Warriors, where he had the same title, working under executive vice president Chris Mullin.
Higgins has a long history with Jordan, the part-owner with oversight of basketball operations. Higgins was assistant general manager with the Washington Wizards when Jordan ran that basketball operation and played with Jordan as a Chicago Bull.
Jordan, Bickerstaff and Higgins are all in suburban Orlando this week, attending the NBA's annual pre-draft camp.
