According to this article, the Wear twins are considering transferring from Carolina to UCLA.
Maybe it is true, maybe not. I've got nothing more than that article and a bunch of internet chatter that is as often wrong as it is right.

Don't ask me why, but my mother is making me Tweet. Says it will be good for my career. So, follow my ramblings, mostly on the film industry, @TVFilmTalk
I don't buy it. It's like the Larry Drew II transfer rumors.
Besides, the Wear twins will be very important next year considering that after Zeller's annual injury, Carolina will only have them and Henson for the 4 & 5.

Most satisfying Duke season since 1991.
Whether it's true or not I like it. I often wondered why they would want to play for williams in chapel hill rather than the storied program in beautiful brentwood. Then I saw them play. Coming East where no one knows them well they can be perceived as 5 star athletes until they finally step on the court. Then reality steps in and a 20 loss season for the heels is in sight. Go heels! Win the NIT next year!
Without them, they have no inside game, with them they have little inside game.
Of course, I am just guessing that ol' roy promised HB that he would not have to play the post, that he would be playing on the perimeter.
I don't see this happening though. The Wears got plenty of playing time last year when healthy (maybe too much), and look to get even more next year with Davis and Thompson gone. Still, it wouldn't be the first time a California player got homesick for the West Coast.
As this thread refers to plural transfers, I'll go beyond Wears to speculate about Leslie McDonald's future over there.
Maybe he loves Roy, his teammates, and his chosen university, and is in whole hog for 4 - maybe 5? - years. I will be very surprised if LM neither transfers nor redshirts at some point. As I gather, UNC fans expect Bullock to be second only to HB in reviving their dream. I assume Graves and Strickland are ahead of LM on the depth chart. He seems such a good shooter, but will he stay there playing 10-12 mpg next year, and no guarantee of ever playing a major role? He can play, but at UNC, much, ever?
Wheat? kong123? shoutingncu? anyone? anyone? [Ben Stein, "Ferris Bueller," Smoot-Hawley tariff....]
If the Wears left, UNC would need to use those scholarships on big men.
I don't know how much UNC basketball you guys watched this year but the Wears were hardly in post at all. Most of their points came off jump shots.
