Patrick Ewing hired as associate head coach of Bobcats

The Charlotte Bobcats have hired Patrick Ewing as their “associate head coach,” according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

Ewing will serve under Steve Clifford, who the Bobcats recently hired.

Wojnarowski notes that it is a “Space Jam reunion,” referencing the 1996 movie that starred Bobcats owner Michael Jordan and Ewing.

This one hurts. Obviously the Knicks continue to view Ewing as someone who won’t add much value to the bench. I don’t understand why Mark Messier is being strongly considered for the Rangers job while Ewing can’t get a sniff with the Knicks. Championship or not I wish they’d be more receptive.
