Source: Hornets Might Change Name To “Pelicans”
Posted on December 2, 2012 by Tony Hoops

The latest New Orleans Hornets rebranding news, however subtle, comes from a highly placed source: Mrs. Gayle Benson. Here is the news from Mrs. Gayle as she spoke to Jennifer Hale on the pregame show before the loss to the Jazz:

The colors they prefer are red, gold, and navy blue
The colors they initially preferred were red, gold, and black
They expect to announce the name change following this season

Following this she also reported that the process to get NBA approval has not begun. Jimmy Smith corroborated this story.

However, placed on the canvas with other facts, these comments take on a greater weight.

In fact, they point straight the New Orleans Pelicans as the end-product the rebrand.

There is a good deal of back story on the rebrand (which you should read up on the fully grok this), but the short of it is that there will be a rebrand, and Pelicans is one of the candidates. This is based on conversations with friends of Hornets247, rumors in various media, and the fact that Tom Benson owns the name / brand, has for a while, and has been maintaining LLC’s bearing this name or something similar.

Red and Gold will look too much like



So they need to pick new colors.

In a perfect world, The Jazz and Hornets franchise would come to some sort of agreement. New Orleans gets the Jazz name back, and Utah can rename themselves ... I don't know ... Salt Lakers?

Even though there's history behind it, still LAME history. The Houston Texans name doesnt seem so bad in comparison

Absolutely

Or, just a straight swap. New Orleans Jazz <=> Utah Hornets

That is a hilariously bad name. At least Charlotte will hopefully get to be the Hornets again.
