The Charlotte Bobcats are defining Matt Carroll’s role with the team and bringing Muggsy Bogues back into the fold.

Carroll, who played seven of his 10 NBA seasons in Charlotte, began working for the Bobcats this season in an undefined role. The Bobcats are now calling Carroll a “team ambassador.” He’s started doing color analysis on home games and will also serve a variety of community-relations roles.

The Bobcats are calling Bogues a “Hornets ambassador” as the team transitions to the new name, logos and uniforms next season. Bogues was an original Hornet and as popular as any player in franchise history. He’ll make occasional appearances at games and community events.
