The North Carolina team are considering a move to move back to their old team name for next season.
When the original Charlotte Hornets were relocated to New Orleans in 2002, a new franchise was set up in the city and were named the Charlotte Bobcats.
However, the New Orleans Hornets have dropped the nickname in favour of the Pelicans for next season, leaving the famous moniker open for acquisition, something that Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is certainly interested in doing.
CBS.com have reported that preliminary talks are underway with league officials to re-brand the team, with the return of the Hornets nickname the beginning.
In the past two seasons, the snake-bitten franchise has a record of just 28-114, and are considered the worst franchise in the NBA right now.
A fresh look is needed for the team that lacks any sort of direction right now, and although they may not be able to bring back Larry Johnson, Alonzo Mourning and Muggsy Bogues, the return of a historic past may just be the catalyst to change the fortunes for this die-hard fan base.
