On January 24, 2013, the New Orleans Hornets announced they would rename themselves the New Orleans Pelicans, in an effort to localize the franchise name, as the Hornets were carried over from the original Charlottle Hornets during relocation. The new name took effect in the 2013/14 NBA season. As a result, records and history of the Hornets from 1988–2002 before relocation to New Orleans were returned to the 2nd Charlotte Hornets franchise, leaving the Pelicans considered starting play in 2002.
