he "Space Jam" reunion is finally here.

Patrick Ewing is joining the Bobcats' coaching staff. (USA Today Sports)Hall of Fame center Patrick Ewing has reached agreement to become the associate head coach for the Charlotte Bobcats, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Charlotte owner Michael Jordan and Ewing appeared together in the 1996 animated cult movie classic. Of greater consequences, Jordan and Ewing were longtime rivals as superstars for the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks.

Ewing will join the coaching staff of new Bobcats head coach Steve Clifford. Ewing and Clifford have a strong professional and personal history together.

Sacramento Kings coach Mike Malone also tried to hire Ewing for his coaching staff.

Before sitting out the 2012-13 season, Ewing had worked eight seasons as an NBA assistant coach, including in Orlando (2008-12) and Houston (2003-08). Ewing was an assistant on each staff with Clifford.

Ewing interviewed for the Bobcats' head-coaching job in 2012, but ultimately Mike Dunlap was hired. Ewing also interviewed for the Detroit Pistons' head-coaching job in 2011.

I like it, this staff could be the best one in our history. With our cap room and upcoming picks plus young talent, we are certainly heading the right direction if you ask me.
