Multiple sources confirm Bobcats have began process to change name to Hornets

It seems as though it’s going to be a reality: the Hornets will be back in Charlotte.

Will Brinson from CBS Sports was the first to break the news via twitter last night, and Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer confirmed the news as well.

Although there hasn’t been a formal announcement from the team, both Brinson and Bonnell cite sources close to the team.

What isn’t known (and my, what a huge mistake this would be) is if the team will adopt the purple and teal color scheme that was part of the Hornet’s popularity.

What are your thoughts on the Hornets name returning to Charlotte?
