Jordan told The Charlotte Observer on Friday that he would be interested in taking control of the Bobcats from majority owner Bob Johnson if and when he decided to sell the team.
``When Bob wants to step aside, I have no problem stepping in and saying, 'Hey, look, I'd love to take control of this franchise,''' Jordan said in a story on the newspaper's Web site. ``But Bob, he's not at that point now. He still enjoys owning the basketball team.''
Jordan bought a minority stake in the Bobcats in 2006 and Johnson gave him total control over the team's basketball operations.
