It’s time to break out that old Charlotte Hornets Starter jacket! Team owner Michael Jordan announced this afternoon that the Charlotte Bobcats have filed the necessary paperwork to take back their old “Hornets” nickname, which was freed up when New Orleans became the Pelicans. The NBA Board of Governors will vote on approving the name change when they meet up in July. Jordan also indicated that the colors may change from teal and purple, and that the logo may be modified.
Will two Cats soon wear Hornets gear? We’ll find out shortly during tonight’s NBA Draft Lottery (8:30 pm ET on ESPN).
