Bobcats set to make major announcement

The Charlotte Bobcats will be making a major announcement Tuesday evening at 6 pm, the team posted on it’s official twitter account.

The NBA Draft Lottery is also tomorrow night, and the Bobcats will be holding an open house at that same time. It’s not known if the Bobcats will make the announcement public or in their typical press conference fashion.

Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer has confirmed that the announcement is that the team will indeed be changing nicknames from Bobcats to Hornets.

Could the Bobcats — er Hornets — get off on the good foot and be awarded the first pick in the 2013 NBA Draft? We’ll find out soon!original_hornets
