Charlotte’s NBA franchise switch is still more than half a year away, but fans are excited about returning to the Hornets brand. While the official logo won’t be revealed until Saturday, one website is giving fans a chance to chime in with their suggestions.
99designs.com is hosting an online community contest that allows fans to design and submit their rendering of what the new Hornets logo would be. The website has received nearly 1,000 submissions for the unofficial contest, which ends on Thursday. The winner will be determined by an online poll.
The Bobcats will officially transition to the Hornets at the end of the 2014 regular season. Bobcats owner Michael Jordan will reveal the new logo and branding at halftime of Saturday's game against the Utah Jazz.
