While Atlanta is closer, its not "right next" to Tampa. Almost 700kms away..

Raleigh is way closer(about 600km closer) to DC then Atlanta.
Raleigh is about 250kms father from Tampa then Atlanta would be.
Raleigh is about 140kms farther from Fort Lauderdale then Atlanta would be.

Atlanta is farther west then Raleigh, so if an eastern conference team has to go to the west i would still think it would be Atlanta. Not to mention that Raleigh is closer to the rest of the eastern conference then Atlanta, which again would make more sense for Raleigh to remain in the conference..
