And he'd never specifically addressed the 'Hornets' as a possibility in the past. Prior to yesterday, he's only spoken in broad, ambiguous terms about a potential rebrand (like JGib said).

There's no reason for 2 men in such positions of power (Benson and Jordan) to speak as casually about something like the rebrand as they have been over the last couple months unless a deal was on the table. They simply have nothing to gain out of humoring the majorities of their respective fanbases that are in favor of the shifts, then not delivering.

It's happening, gang :)

twitter abuzz with Tom Benson's wife stating that this is the "final year of the New Orleans Hornets"

No credible source cited. I tweeted to John and Bring Back the Buzz to cite one so this may be all some misquoted BS.

If this is true though, wow. Could be a big domino dropping.

Jordan will spend a little cash to rebrand so all you morons get excited & come support his joke of a team. Brilliant business move.

It would be ironic if New Orleans went from the Hornets to the Spirit.

In 1987, when Charlotte got its first NBA team, it was originally named the Spirit. Then it switched to the Hornets.
