Kwame Brown to reunite with Jordan in Charlotte

It's hard to forget the last time Michael Jordan and Kwame Brown negotiated a contract. Brown was taken first overall in 2001 by Jordan and the Wizards, and promptly busted. Now, they're together again.

Marc Stein of ESPN reports Brown will sign a deal with the Charlotte Bobcats for the league's veteran minimum. It's been 10 years since Jordan took Brown No. 1 overall in a move that seriously altered both of their careers. But the Bobcats are looking for a little frontcourt depth and for what he is now, Brown can help provide some of that.

Mark Bartelstein, Brown's agent, told Stein that Brown is trying to "create a new chapter" in his relationship with Jordan. Right now Charlotte is pretty thin up front with Erick Dampier's contract almost certainly to be bought out. Other than that, Charlotte has Boris Diaw, Tyrus Thomas and Nazr Mohammed on the inside. So it's safe to say that Brown found a team that he should at least find minutes on.

Last season Brown played for the Pistons appearing in 48 games, averaging 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 13.8 minutes per game.

This just shows how weak the market is on free agent big men.  All that is left is Etan Thomas, Brian Skinner and Kwame Brown....not many choices.  The premier big man in the East is Howard of the Magic....looks like Jordan is trying to get some size up front.  Not many big men in the league these days.

I see a trend here....great players(Michael and nitwit Isiah Tomas) on the court BUT the biggest duds for Executives....Neither of them can let go OR avoid stupid mistakes.

Just can't get out of his own way, can he?  MJ's ego is a sight to behold.  Totally value-less pick up.

Not much risk at a vet's minimum. Would be nice to see this "bust" finish with a few decent years of respectable play. But that may not happen.
