Bobcats To Host Heat in Pre-Season Game in Raleigh

Charlotte, NC (WBTV)- The Bobcats may not be in the playoffs, but they have

lots to do over the next couple of weeks. They still need to hire a new head coach

and they have to look over talent for their second pick in the June 28th draft.

The team also announced today they will face the Miami Heat in a pre-season

match-up Tuesday, October 23rd at PNC Arena in Raleigh.

It will be the Bobcats first ever pre-season game in the state's capitol.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 7th.

The game replaces last year's pre-season game that was postponed

due to the NBA work stoppage.
