The Charlotte Bobcats want their old name back and have begun the process to become the Hornets again, according to CBSSports.com. The NBA franchise is pursuing the switch after New Orleans gave up the nickname when its season ended in April to become the Pelicans. Charlotte's original team was known as the Hornets from 1988 until 2002 when it moved to New Orleans. The transition could take up to 18 months, NBA deputy commissioner Adam Silver said in April.
