CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- The Charlotte Bobcats are going back to owner Michael Jordan's hometown for training camp.
The team announced on Tuesday the team will hold camp at UNC Wilmington from Sept. 28-Oct. 4. The Bobcats trained in Wilmington for four consecutive seasons before staying in Charlotte last season in a cost-cutting move by then-owner Bob Johnson.
Jordan bought the Bobcats outright in the spring and wanted the team to go away for camp. The team decided on coastal Wilmington, where Jordan went to Laney High School before embarking on a Hall of Fame career as a player.
The Bobcats also have ties to UNC Wilmington after former director of player personnel Buzz Peterson became basketball coach there earlier this year.
