From Hornets to Pelicans?
NEW ORLEANS - Could the New Orleans Hornets be going through a name change?
Reports and speculation suggest a color scheme and name change could be coming for the NBA franchise.
Saints owner Tom Benson bought the Hornets this April for a reported $338 million in an attempt to bring financial stability to the small-market team.
If the club does decide to take on the name of the former New Orleans minor league baseball team, it is likely the Charlotte Bobcats would take back the Hornets name.
Other names considered were the 'Brass' and 'Krewe.'
