HoopsHype Matt Carroll rumors
Shooting guard Matt Carroll serves as the Bobcats' player representative to the union. He said he's done everything he can to convey to his teammates this could be a long lockout, potentially canceling the 2011-12 season. The owners expect hundreds of millions in concessions from the players. "Obviously we know some things have to change. We're willing to accept something different and understand there's got to be some middle ground," said Carroll. "We have not received anything from the owners that they're budging from the initial proposal." Charlotte Observer
And what did he think of that first proposal? "I think at first everyone was, well, not laughing, but (saying) this is a little bit drastic. But they haven't (changed anything). "They're playing hardball, I guess." Charlotte Observer
