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.
