It's essentially the same thing they did in New Orleans. The only difference is no one knew exactly what they'd settled on until January, so it might've seemed like the wait between Hornets and Pelicans was shorter. The reality is that the two timelines (assuming the 'Cats act quickly) are pretty much mirror images of one another.
It seems like Benson kept his under the radar though, albeit the N.O. Pelicans aren't as intriguing as the Charlotte Hornets.
