Jordan brushes off speculation about future

Philadelphia 76ers coach Eddie Jordan says he’s not worried

about a newspaper report stating he could be fired soon.

The Philadelphia Inquirer, citing unidentified sources, reported

on Tuesday that Comcast-Spectator was ready to fire Jordan, likely

after his first season with the team is complete.

The 76ers are 23-40 heading into Wednesday night’s game against

Charlotte, 8 1/2 games out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern

Conference.

Jordan signed a four-year contract when he was hired.

He said of the speculation, “that if you know how to handle it,

then it won’t bother you.”

Jordan says he hasn’t approached his bosses regarding the

report.
