The New Orleans Hornets are expected to become the Pelicans as early as the 2013-14 season, numerous sources told Yahoo! Sports.

A change of the nickname has been expected since Tom Benson purchased the team.

Benson owns the rights to the nickname Pelicans. Louisiana is known as the Pelican State.

The Hornets also considered the nicknames Krewe (groups of costumed paraders in the annual Mardi Gras carnival in New Orleans) and Brass.

With the Hornets abandoning their nickname, the Charlotte Bobcats can possibly change their name.

I understand that a pelican is Louisiana's state bird but seriously that's the best they can come up with.

Oh well I at least hope that Charlotte buy's back the rights to the Hornets I just can't relate with the Bobcats name.

I like the court design...reminds me of the Warriors around the time they beat the Mavs in the playoffs.

Still a terrible name, though.
