Bird, Charlotte Might Return to NBA Together

Basketball Hall of Famer and former Indiana Pacers coach Larry Bird could be returning to the NBA. So might the city of Charlotte. League Commissioner David Stern says that he's received a letter from Bird and Bird's former Boston teammate, M.L. Carr, regarding an application for ownership of an NBA franchise in Charlotte.

Stern says that Carr and Bird are interested in pursuing a franchise for the city and that Carr would be spending much of the summer working on that issue. Stern tells NBC that Charlotte would need a plan for a new arena before getting another team. The arena issue was a driving force in sending the Hornets to New Orleans.
