Sports Illustrated reported yesterday that the decision to switch from Hornets to Pelicans may not be final, with New Orleans filing for four other potential (and extremely hilarious) team names.
Nonetheless, design blog 99designs is holding a really cool Pelican logo contest:
The site has attracted a lot of creative entries so far; you can find all the logos up for vote right here.
It's unclear at this point what connection these designs would have with the official team logo, though it's clear from the selection thus far that a number of these can be considered professional quality. And however it all ends up playing out, it's neat to see talented artists taking an interest in the Hornets' new logo and mascot.
