Jordan wants to own team: Brown

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Former basketball great Michael Jordan could soon be the owner of his own NBA team.

Charlotte Bobcats coach Larry Brown says Jordan is doing everything he can to become the majority owner of the club in his home state.

Brown said Monday that Jordan "wants it badly" and is hopeful he'll soon be running the franchise. Bob Johnson is looking to sell the unprofitable club, and NBA commissioner David Stern said Saturday he expects a deal to be completed within two months.

It's uncertain if Jordan, currently a part owner with the final say on basketball decisions, will be able to put an ownership group together and agree with Johnson on a price.

Former Rockets executive George Postolos also has made inquiries about buying the team.
