AP Source: Ewing New Bobcats Associate Head Coach

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says the Charlotte Bobcats have reached an agreement in principle with Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing to become their new associate head coach.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the hire has not yet been made official.

The 50-year-old Ewing was a teammate of Bobcats owner Michael Jordan on the 1992 USA Olympic "Dream Team" that won gold at the Barcelona Games.

Ewing also spent five years as an assistant coach with the Orlando Magic working alongside Steve Clifford, who was hired as the Bobcats head coach last month.

Ewing has nine years of experience as an NBA assistant coach.

Ewing interviewed for the Bobcats head coaching position in 2012, but Jordan hired Mike Dunlap instead.
