CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Sam Vincent believes he deserves to return as coach of the Charlotte Bobcats next season, contending the team made progress despite being all but certain to miss the playoffs.
Part-owner Michael Jordan has not indicated whether the first-year coach will be back to complete his two-year contract. Vincent expects to meet with Jordan at the end of the season.
Jordan hired Vincent last spring despite his inexperience. Vincent had coached around the world and in the NBA Development League.
The Bobcats were 28-46 entering Wednesday's game with Cleveland.
