Both Sean May and Raymond Felton will be restricted free agents this summer, and Bobcats coach Larry Brown has already said that he'd like them back.
"He lost (nearly) 50 pounds since the summer. Hopefully he'll continue to get his weight down," Brown said Wednesday of May, who has played far less than Felton. "Michael (Jordan, the team's managing partner) likes him, I like him.
"I still don't think he's really ready to play, and he might disagree with that. I really think this is a big summer for him, and summer started yesterday."
Brown then discussed Felton, who Charlotte would have to make a qualifying offer of about $5.5 million this summer to restrict his free-agency.
"He had a phenomenal year. He's done everything we asked," Brown said. "He wants to be around and I'm confident things will work out."
