NEW ORLEANS- Enjoy rooting for the Hornets? You'll have to change your chant.

The NBA team will likely go by the Pelicans next season.

Tom Benson recently bought the team. Benson also owns the Saints and a TV station in New Orleans.

The name isn't new to sports in South Louisiana. It was the name of a minor league baseball team in New Orleans in the early 1900s.
