CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -The Charlotte Bobcats' front office turnover continued Tuesday with the team announcing that chief administration officer Jared Bartie and vice president of community relations LaRita Barber left to take new jobs.
The departures come two weeks after the team laid off dozens of employees in the marketing and business departments due to the slumping economy. Chief marketing officer Greg Economou left the organization last month.
Bartie, who took over many of Economou's duties, is leaving for World Wrestling Entertainment. Barber is taking a job with Goodwill Industries in Charlotte.
Bobcats owner Bob Johnson has lost millions since paying $300 million for the expansion franchise, which began play in the 2004-05 season.
