Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan called Patrick Ewing to let him know that he is no longer being considered for the team's head coaching job, reports Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
Ewing, an assistant coach for the Orlando Magic for the past five years, had interviewed for the Bobcats' position earlier this month. Wojnarowski reports that Hall of Fame coach Jerry Sloan, former Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan and Warriors assistant Mike Malone are among the remaining candidates for the job.
The Bobcats finished this season with the lowest winning percentage in league history. Charlotte went only 7-59.
