The Charlotte Bobcats officially adopted the “Hornets” moniker on Tuesday, launching a new website to reflect the name change.

The organization’s new website, Hornets.com, sports the team’s new teal-and-purple color scheme and includes the tagline: “From the heart of our history comes the fierce soul of our future.”

A press conference to formally announce the name change will be held on Tuesday in advance of the 2014 NBA draft lottery drawing.
