Glad the Hornets are going back to Charlotte. Next, send the Jazz monkier back to N.O. and come up with something that makes sense for Utah. Crickets, seagulls, BYUtes, Knuckleheads, Orange Barrels, Falcons, Brine Shrimp, Mustangs, Bison, Arches, Jello Molds, Pioneers, Miners. The possibilities are endless and just about any name would make more sense than the Jazz. Or we could take Toronto's name as the Utah Raptors makes great sense.
In regard to the rule changes, I love the clear path rule, am unsure about the extra reviews, and the out of bounds rule....hmm.

The only name I might consider changing the Utah Jazz name to is the Utah Stars. Its old ABA name.

I like the Utah Jazz name, but if they could sell it back to New Orleans for a few million dollars and a first round draft pick (next year's) then yes, it's something Jazz management and ownership should consider.

By the way, the "Pelicans" name for New Orleans is, in my opinion, just awful.
