You can say a lot of things about Michael Jordan the owner, but never accuse him of being disloyal to family.

Jordan as an owner has the right to make any personnel decision he chooses, and according to Yahoo Sports, Jordan has hired his older brother Larry to be the Bobcats director of player personnel.

Larry Jordan, an older brother of Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan, was promoted to team director of player personnel, several sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Along with Michael Jordan, Larry will answer to team president of basketball operations Ron Higgins and general manager Rich Cho. Larry Jordan’s previous job was team director of special projects. He fills a position that was vacant for three years after Buzz Peterson departed to become the head coach at Appalachian State.

Sources say Michael  oldest son, Jeffrey, and daughter, Jasmine, are also involved with the Bobcats in lesser roles.
