The man who brought stability to the new orleans saints.. is hoping to do the same with the hornets.
The Black and Gold's owner Tom Benson a New Orleans native emerged from the NBA board of governors meetings as the "Bees" new owner.
He reportedly paid close to 340 million dollars to join the very exclusive club of NBA owners...
" we expect this club to be one of the most outstanding clubs in the league. otherwise i don't want to get involved with it. that's going to be our, right off the bat, our goal is to win the championships and our goal is gonna be that this thing is going to be great for new orleans. we need this."
The Hornets are currently 16 and 42 on the season.. they have the worst in the Western Conference.
The NBA has been trying to sell the Hornets since 2010.
Benson didn't pull the trigger earlier because he's been busy with the Saint's bounty system scandal.
