*Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan has been on both sides of the fence and has a pretty well rounded perspective on the whole NBA drama. He says while the collective bargaining agreement that was recently reached is a step toward improving balancing the league, it’s far from perfect.
According to the Associated Press, he opposed the Chris Paul trade to the L.A. Lakers because “as a small market (owner) I’m very supportive of being able to keep your star player.”
(Unfortunately for Mr. Jordan, Paul is in LA anyway. He was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.)
But on the flip side, she said he’d be interested in signing Paul if he becomes a free agent next year.
With that, Jordan believes the new agreement will help level the paying field and keep teams within range of each other on the financial tip due to increased luxury tax implications.
