Kwame Brown and Michael Jordan Officially Re-united

Kwame Brown Michael Jordan

Today the GM of the Charlotte Bobcats announced the official signing of free agent big man Kwame Brown. Yes, that’s right folks. That means Michael Jordan who drafted Brown with the #1 overall pick 2001 when he was the Director of Basketball Operations for the Wizards (which many consider to be the worst draft decision of all time), will once again be taking a chance on Kwame Brown by bringing him back into the fold. Here are the details:

Charlotte Bobcats General Manager Rod Higgins announced today that the team has signed free agent center Kwame Brown. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. Several media outlets reported that the deal would be for one-year and the league minimum.

The 6-11 Brown will enter his 10th NBA season, with career averages of 6.7 points and 5.4 rebounds in 22.0 minutes over 510 games (217 starts) with Washington, the L.A. Lakers, Memphis and Detroit. In 18 career playoff games (12 starts), Brown averaged 8.7 points and 5.8 rebounds. Last season with the Pistons, Brown appeared in 48 games and averaged 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 16.0 minutes. {via}

This whole signing makes me wonder about one thing. It’s silly. Really silly……will Michael Jordan come out of retirement to play for the Bobcats if Brown doesn’t perform well?

I am completely joking obviously, but it does make you think, if Jordan hated to watch Brown falter to the point of coming out of retirement when he was only the Director of Basketball Operations, how bad will he want to come out of retirement when he’s the one actually signing Kwame Brown’s pay check every month? Hmm….food for thought.
