The NBA-owned New Orleans Hornets have been sold to Saints owner Tom Benson for a price sources said is $338 million. Benson is the sole owner and no partners are involved. "I'm not too good with partners," Benson said.

Tom Benson, new New Orleans Hornets owner, would like to change the team?s name ?tomorrow? | Ball Don't Lie - Yahoo! Sports

Quote:

Benson said he is also trying to change the name of the NBA team to better fit the ambiance, culture and charm of New Orleans. "We need to find a name like (Jazz)," Benson said, referring to New Orleans first NBA team that relocated to Salt Lake City in 1979. "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. 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."

Are they allowed to just change the name of their team mid-way through the season?

Why not? It would generate some revenue for a team that is in a pretty big rut.
