Jordan lures Higgins away from Mullin
Rod Higgins has left a former teammate to reunite withanother. Higgins, who served as the Warriors’ general manager for the past three seasons under Chris Mullin, was hired by the Charlotte Bobcats for the same position, a move that will have him working for his old friend Michael Jordan once again.
