Matt Carroll RumorsAll NBA Players
The Bobcats are calling Bogues a “Hornets ambassador” as the team transitions to the new name, logos and uniforms next season. Muggsy was an original Hornet and an incredibly popular Charlottean who still lives here. Having him make appearances at games and community events can only be a plus.
The Charlotte Bobcats are defining Matt Carroll’s role with the team and bringing Muggsy Bogues back into the fold. A couple of months ago I reported Carroll, who played 7 ½ of his 10 NBA seasons as a Bobcat, was joining the organization. The franchise didn’t initially define his role. The Bobcats are now calling Carroll a “team ambassador” with a variety of roles. He’s started doing radio color analysis on home games (long overdue Scott Lauer got someone to interact with). Carroll will also serve a variety of community-relations roles with the team.
Matt Carroll liked wearing a blue 76ers practice shirt. And he looked good in it. Carroll, a 10-year NBA player, sported a Sixers shirt while he helped Sixers coach Brett Brown, who coached him with the Spurs as a rookie, during training camp that ended Wednesday at St. Joseph’s. Carroll, 33, contacted Brown after deciding to retire and Brown invited him to Philadelphia. “I’ve been enjoying it,” said Carroll, a Hatboro-Horsham High graduate. “It’s been a great experience with the Sixers and having a chance to work with a lot of young players (including former Temple standout Khalif Wyatt) and learning from Brett and the rest of his coaching staff.”
