What was so clear about trying to pull the Carolina fanbase? The team never stated that was their intent, in fact, they said just the opposite. So other than taking two former Tarheels who happened to be the BPA for positions of need, I don't know of one thing that made it obvious they were trying to pull in the UNC fanbase. Do you?
The ties with the Bobcats and the Heels run deep. Dont get me wrong, I am still a Bobcats fan(which is hard being a Duke fan as well) but lets not close our eyes and say there is no effort here to bring Chapel Hill to Charlotte.
Bobcats' Carolina ties
Now obviously, this includes front office and coaching staff, but my point is you can not argue that the Bobcats are not trying to "keep it in the family". This list does not include David Noel and I believe Shammond Williams, who were on summer league rosters at one point or another. It also doesnt include drafting Wright. Hell, if anyone could locate Joe Forte, he could at least get a summer league spot I bet.
