Default New Hornets owner wants to change the team name

Deseret News:

On Friday, Saints/Hornets owner Tom Benson had the following to say after announcing he's buying New Orleans' NBA team:

"We need to find a name like (Jazz). Whether we can get that or let us use that, you've got to know we're working on it. We'd like to change it tomorrow," Benson said. "We have not gotten that approved, but we're not letting up on it, either, because we've got a good relationship with the commissioner and his people and we're going to be on them daily to do something."
