Hornets Out, Pelicans In

Nick Laham/Getty Images Sport

Ever since Tom Benson bought the New Orleans Hornets back in April, it’s been believed a re-branding of the franchise was right around the corner.

Well, here ya go.

The Hornets will become the New Orleans Pelicans, perhaps as soon as next season. The pelican, of course, is the Louisiana State Bird. Reportedly, the Brass and the Krewe were also considered.

Also on the horizon is probably a color scheme change. The rumor is red, navy blue and gold to replace the current teal color.

Will the Hornets nickname wind up back in Charlotte where it began? Stay tuned.
