Charlotte Hornets Unveil New Modern Uniforms for 2014-15 Season

The Charlotte Hornets are back, but they will have a slightly different look this time around.

Since the New Orleans franchise decided to switch its nickname to the "Pelicans," the return of the Hornets name to Charlotte has been highly anticipated. The name made its official return to the NBA at the 2014 NBA draft lottery in May.

Back in December, Charlotte unveiled a couple of edgy logos. The logos confirmed that the teal and purple, along with Hugo T. Hornet, would return. 

The organization has now unveiled what the team's uniforms will look like. The pinstripes are gone, and the team has gone with a more modern look.

ESPN.com's Darren Rovell tweeted out a more detailed look at Charlotte's three new uniforms:
