The New Orleans Hornets are expected to change their nickname to the Pelicans as early as the 2013-14 season, numerous sources told Yahoo! Sports.
The Hornets planned to change their nickname since Tom Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints, purchased the team on April 14. Benson also owns the rights to the nickname Pelicans.
Gayle Benson, Benson's wife pictured right, told Fox Sports New Orleans recently her preference for new team colors was navy blue, red and gold.
