UNC star basketball player Armando Bacot has a special message for Michael Savarino.

Bacot wants Savarino, who's the grandson of Coach K, to come play at North Carolina for the 2022 season.

Savarino is set to be a graduate transfer for the 2022-23 season. He appeared in 11 games this season for the Blue Devils and averaged a little over two minutes of playing time.

Bacot would obviously love this for the storyline alone since the two schools hate each other.

Bacot is also running it back with the Tar Heels for one more season. There was some speculation that he could leave for the NBA Draft, but he decided to play one more year.

He had one heck of a season after helping lead UNC to the National Championship Game. He averaged 16 points and 13 rebounds per game while also leading the country in double-doubles overall.

It's unlikely Savarino would embrace all the chaos with this move, but it would surely be a lot of fun.
