    No bullshit, reports are hitting the wire that this is indeed happening

    The New Orleans Hornets are expected to become the New Orleans Pelicans, perhaps as early as the 2013-14 season, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.

    Yahoo! Sports, citing numerous sources, reports the team also considered Krewe and Brass as potential nicknames.
    The Hornets have planned to change their name since New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson, who also owns the rights to the Pelicans nickname, bought the team in April.
    Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan said in November he'd be interested in bringing the Hornets name back to Charlotte.

    Salt Lake City should change their name, and NO should get Jazz back.

    NO Jazz
    Charlotte Hornets
    Salt Lake City Mormons (or Saints would work too).

    Bobcats is the gayest name for a sports franchise ever. Not that I'm a racist, but how 'bout the "New Orleans group of lovely people"? You have to admit its got a certain ring to it.
