Dave Wear said he discussed the decision with Tar Heels' coach Roy Williams earlier in the evening by telephone and that he hoped that his sons would be released from their scholarship agreements with the school ``as early as Thursday".
Wear wouldn't offer any details as to why the players (who took their last spring semester finals today) were making the move other than to say ``they decided they didn't want to return to North Carolina. When they return home (in Huntington Beach) we will sit down as a family and review their basketball and academic options,'' he said.

David's season was cut short due to hip surgery, but prior to that he played in 27 games, starting two, and averaged 2.9 points and 1.7 rebounds.
