New Orleans, La (NBC33) — It's a new day for professional basketball in Louisiana as the New Orleans Pelicans become our official NBA team.
The new name and logo of the New Orleans NBA franchise comes after Saints owner Tom Benson bought the team last year. Benson says he's ready for this new chapter in Louisiana basketball history.
The hornets finished the season last night with the second-worst record in the Western Conference. The team's new website, PelicansNBA.com, launched today.
