Will Charlotte ever take the Hornets name back now that NOLA is changing their name?

I know it would cost a lot to re brand and all that, but i think it would be great for the city of charlotte.

It's going to happen after the season, before the Draft. MJ isn't dumb.

MJ is going to make more in return by rebranding.

I'm curios as to when's the soonest they can become the hornets. Could they change over this off season since the name is already owned by the league and still has merchandise and so forth.

Seems they could fast track the deal and let the bobcats become the hornets the upcoming year

my guess nothing can be made officail until after New Orleans is officially renamed. which wont happened until after the regular season is over.

I think they will do it in the 2014 offseason. I have no evidence, but I think that makes the most sense. Unless MJ is tired of the attendance and merch sales and hopes/thinks that a rebrand will bring more $ next year. However, as far as a brand goes, I think it would be best to wait until we have a competitive team (2014-15 season) before rebranding. You don't want even a single season of crappiness to be stuck with a brand.

I can't wait until when 20 years from now people start wearing retro bobcats gear and some douche starts a movement to COME BACK CATS
