2K signs Jordan for NBA 2K11?

Not Katie Price.

2K Sports may have signed basketball legend Michael Jordan to front NBA 2K11.

The Chicago Bulls and Space Jam star will appear on the box and as a playable character in the game, according to ESPN.

Jordan might not be the only golden oldie making a reappearance, as ESPN reports hearing whispers that his peers (both team-mates and rivals) are being tapped up by 2K. Could we see Pippen, Rodman and Jordan reunited?

The rest of the game's roster probably hopes not.

Also, Jordan's majority stake in the Charlotte Bobcats means this will be the first time a basketball team owner has endorsed the NBA 2KX series of games.

NBA 2K11 hasn't formally been announced, and 2K could not be reached for comment.
